I'd agree with Slade that some alterations should be made to the buttons. Either make the white translucent, or maybe 3d-ize them if you're using photoshop and can do that sort of thing. They'd look good with some depth like that.
do you rekon you could get a higher rez image for the top picture, its like you got and image of the box art and enlarged it.
Funny you should say that.............
Thanks for all the feedback. I am not happy with the buttons myself as they stand - need a little more playing around with in PS I agree (didn't realise I could add a bit of depth to them - will try that over the weekend).
And yes, the top half does let it down a bit on the resolution side of things - time to trawl the net again and look for a higher res version.
Thanks again guys
*EDIT* Got a much nicer top screen now! And improved the pop-up window as well.
But these damn buttons are killing me - Can't seem to make any sense of transparencies
Never mind, will stick at it for a bit longer yet.
Yeah, I've managed to suss out bevel & embossing - thanks for the tip venoman
It's just I'd rather have the images on the buttons with transparent backgrounds, so they don't look like buttons (if you catch my drift).
- In your layer pallette, select a layer which contains your icon artwork
- At the top of the pallette, you will see a dropdown box which currently says Normal (It appears next to the Opacity setting).
- Try changing this from Normal to screen, overlay, etc to get some interesting effects.
*Edit:* I made a quick video showing a few different ways to do it:
Scrawl you are an absolute star !!!!!! Thankyou so much for that little video - it explained more in a couple of minutes than I've been able to suss out for myself in weeks (didn't get any kind of manual with my copy of PS for some reason ).
Must get back to work while it's fresh in my mind.
Thanks again !
