    This is a nice collection of Photoshop tutorial. However, for those who does not have Photoshop or knowledge of designer and wants create their own button with easy, I will suggest Cool Button Designer. Cool Button Designer can generate buttons for all three states on the fly, mouse over, mouse pressed and normal states. It gives you ability to control the light and reflection, add icon to your button, to gazillion of shapes, etc… Very nice software to create Web 2.0 style button. Cool Button Designer also generates you the HTML code for you to use. It saves the templates, that you can resize any time without loosing the quality of your button.

    You should try it, its not a joke, and with 3-5 minutes you can build this button from scratch.

    I am using it myself for my projects, and very glad to find it.

    Try it, google for Cool Button Designer. Official website has a free trial, limited with watermark only.
