Hey, Today I will write a very simple tutorial to creat a cool web 2.0 button within ~5min. And Nexttime, I will show you a new CSS trick to get a cool Hover Effect with this Image...

Oh! By the way i have upload the PSD File, which you can download below.
Let's Start

Screen Final:


Step 1: New Document
Open a new document 500x500 pixel and put #222222 as background Color.



Step 2: Draw the Base
Take the Rounded Rectangle Tool (U) and set the Radius to 5px. Draw it Big! Any color woould do it, because we will add a gradiant.



Step 3: Style It

Now let's Style it! Double click on the shape (The Layer Style Window should open). Activate The Gradiant Style and add these colors;

#690000 to #be0000.



Then activate the Inner Glow style and select the color to white and Blend mode to Overlay. Then Look below for Contour, double click on it and select the Sawtooth1 preset.




Step 4: web 2.0 Gloss
open a new layer and Ctrl + Click on your shape layer, you should see a dashed border on you object. Next pick Eliptical Tool (M)

Then ALT + Shift to Draw a Cricle on your shape. Check the screen below. You should have some thing like this.



Then pick the Gradiant Tool (G) and Select Foreground to Transparent in Gradiant Editor and make sur to have White as your first color.

Draw a nice straight vertical line.



Next Set the Opacity to 30 - 50 Your choice!

Merge the layer by clicking Ctrl on both layer and right click then select Merge Layers.

Step 5: Shadow

Take the Rounded Rectangle Tool (U) and draw a tight one then go Filter > Blur > Gaussian and set it 5px.
Now select the both layer shadow + The object and delete some part of the shadow).It should like this.



Step 5: Reflection
Next Copy the object layer and go Edit > Transform > Flip Vertical. Then move it at the bottom of the forst one so we could have a nice reflection.
Then pick the Gradiant Tool (G) and Select Foreground to Transparent in Gradiant Editor and make sur to have Black as your first color.
Go Down to Up  and next set the opacity to about 30 px;


Step 6: Last

You could add text and do the same thing as step 5 so you could get this.
