1. Open a new document

2. Create a hollow rectangle with rounded corners in black with antiliasing disabled

3. On a new layer select the inside of that rectangle with '0' tolerance and apply a liner gradient of blue to white

4. On a new layer create a new rectangle with rounded corners again so that the blue to white gradient is visible around the outside

5. Select the outside of that rectangle and create a black to white linear gradient within the selection.

6. Apply gaussian blur at a setting of 2

7. Run AA's Assistant at 3.

There are many other ways to do this also - this was the first one that came to mind and it took about 2 minutes!

Darn! Beaten by welshblue in the time it took me to create and upload the images!

Anyway, it was good practise for me for my first tutorial... many years from now boltbait.smile.png

Someone (sorry, I don't remember who) suggested using the line tool in another thread (if I remember right, it was on a tutorial for a "Shield" thread):

Step 1: 2cmslds.png

Step 2: 15rxu9v.png

Step 3: 11rq34z.png

End result: 64kkl2.png

Resize as needed.

The Button plugin I linked to gives you the option of setting the button height and width. It seems a much easier method of making these rounded buttons boltbait.wink.png
