Vista Styled Button Source: http://www.psfreak.com/vista-styled-button Step 1 Like usual we are going to start off with filling the background with a radial gradient from a light grey to a darker grey. Light grey: #3e3d3d. Dark grey: #151515. [pic] Step 2 Create a new layer (Layer > New > Layer) and using the rounded rectangle tool make a fixed shape of 300 by 50 pixels in the middle of the document. [pic] Right click the shape and click make selection. [pic] Select the gradient tool and set the style to reflected gradient. Set the foreground colour to #1c3f47 and the background colour to #2a6976. Left click in the middle of the selection and drag to the bottom of the selection and release. This will provide us with the base of the button. [pic] Step 3 Now we are going to be adding some layer styles to our button to make it vista styled. Layer > Layer Styles > Outer Glow [pic] Layer > Layer Styles > Inner Glow [pic] Layer > Layer Styles > Gradient Overlay [pic] Now your button should be looking like this. [pic] Step 4 Now we are going to be adding a reflection to our button. On a new layer select the area of your base layer (ctrl + click layer) and fill the selection with white (#ffffff). [pic] With the rectangular marquee tool selected move it down below the button. [pic] Go Edit > Transform > Perspective and drag the bottom right box towards the right while holding down the shift key (this pulls the other side out too so it keeps it even). [pic] Add a layer mask and add a gradient from white to black within the reflection – this will fade it out. [pic] Set the blend mode of the layer to Soft Light and lower the opacity to 15%. [pic] Step 5 Last of all we are going to be adding some text. Choose a nice crisp and clean font for this.
