There’s a great tutorial on Unlimit-3D.Com on how to make those glassy iTunes buttons that seem all the rage these days. iTunes button

A very worthwhile tutorial to follow along and add to your artistic toolbox!
I have also made a .pdf copy of it incase something happens to the site, but it’s a much-recommended site to bookmark for great photoshop tutorials.
