I use Photoshop and Illustrator and although I am not that gifted I do know most of the tools and such.
I have tried to make surfaces in vector graphics look shiny or reflective and don't know how it's done. I can use gradient fills and can make surfaces look like they are being shown in a certain light but not that shiny/reflective look.
Is there a plug-in or filter I need to make it easier or do I just need t use the gradient mesh tool better.
Hi Crackbot - there are some good really good tutorials about this - a search for glass button tutorial will turn up some goodies - once you have the gist you can then tweak the effectfor you own. - it's quote easy to do - 4 layers, 3 gradients, 2 tranparencies and a partridge....
