    yeah, they are really cool. and there are tons of tutorials on how to do it.

    start here

    I have an action that someone created for PS, i just type or draw and press the action and it does it for. Its nice when im in a hurry, or just comparing styles. but there are some tricks to getting it just right

    actions are like automated steps.

    say you 100 images and you need to resize them all half the original size and export as a jpeg.

    with actions you can record the process of doing one image like that and "play" the action for the other 99 images.

    but thats kinda like cheating!

    try expirimenting with transparency, and gradients.

    hi again, ok so i found a few more tutorials, and i have been giving it a go for a while now, and its not too bad, i can sort of get a glass like effect over my buttons
    thanks for that, i was wondering though if there is somewhere i can get this action you have? or something similar...just to try out see if it looks any better...it takes so long to follow all the steps, ive tried 2 tutorials so far, and well, theyre ok.....
    anyways, thanks for the help, and if you dont wanna chare it, i understand! peace!
