    Beveled Control Buttons

    In this tutorial we're going to create rounded 3d buttons that look like they're popping right off of the screen. First off l'd like to point out that this is a re-write of a tutorial that was originally created for paintshop pro by a man named Brian Zimmer. This tutorial was made, with his complete consent. If you'd like to see the paintshop pro version of this tutorial, please visit his site: ZimmerTech.com. Trust me, he's got lots of great stuff to check out!

    Step 6.)
    The only thing left to do is add text to your button. Use -, x or >> for example. Once you have it set up like you want, scale the buttons down to around 25x25...


    Here's an example l made using this technique.
