SHINY BUTTON TUTORIAL

Ok... My name is Alex and I did this tutorial to show you my shiny button for beginners

Where you'll see the text typed between ** that means it's optional

YOU NEED:

- Outline Object

BEGINNING:

Step 1: - Starting

A blank page *(I'm using Width: 200 - Height: 60)*

EXAMPLE 1:

Step 2: - Shape

Draw the shape of the button *(I'm making it Rounded-Rectangle)*

EXAMPLE 2:

Step 3: - Colors

Make a new Layer. Select the outside of the shape *(I used Magic Wand - Tolerance 50%)*, press [ctrl+i] and draw a grandient on the new layer. -Make sure the grandiend layer is under the shape one-

EXAMPLE 3:

Step 4: - Shiny Thing

Make a new layer, grab the white color and draw the shine's shape. *Blur it.*

And set the transparency to 70-90 -The shine shape must be under the button's shape and above the grandiend- Then select the outside of the button's shape *(I used Magic Wand - Tolerance 50%)* and delete the unnecessary shine

EXAMPLE 1:

EXAMPLE 2:

MEDIUM:

Step 1: - Adding more shine

Select the inside of the button's shape *(I used Magic Wand - Tolerance 50%)* then go to Effects > Outline Object and pick a color *I set the Radius to 5 and Strengh to 1*. Click OK

EXAMPLE 1:

Now deselect all and stay on the button's shape and go again to Effects > Outline Object and pick white * I set Radius to 1 and Strengh to 1*, Ok again.

Step 2: - Adding Text and some effects to it

Just play with a variation of outlines and layer blends
