Tutorial: How to make a shiny button

I like this button more than the Mac button in my previous tutorial.

1. Fire your photoshop and create a new workspace with the size approximately 250x100 with transparent background and draw a pill shaped as shown on my Mac button tutorial.

2. You will need to cut off the background if you did not use a transparent background.
