Step 1.

Open any wood texture that you want to follow in this tutorial

This is the wood texture sample image that I will use, it owned by AGF81 (Deviant name / user) that you can download in Deviantart. So open now youe browser there and locate the best wood texture image that you want.

Step 2.

Use Rounded Rectangle tool, create a selection and duplicate it

In this process, we are going to use the Rounded Rectangle Tool (U for keyboard short), if incase that you hit the U key the Rounded Rectangle tool isn’t appear, just press Shift + U to rotate the tools in shape tool category and if you’re not comfortable wit the keyboard shortcut, just go in the tool palette and locate the Rounded Rectangle tool. Then right after that, create a shape like on the screenshot. Make sure that your px is in 75 to make a pretty cool edges.


Choose any color in the color picker to make a good visual in adjusting in shape tool. So here, I use color #000000 (Black). Right after that, use now the Ellipse tool, it is in shape tool category (just press Shift + U to rotate the shape tools activation), and hit Shift to append shape in one layer only. So follow what I’ve add like on the screenshot below.

Then, click the icon of shape layer while holding press Ctrl to make a whole selection of shape of what we did before. Right after that, activate the background layer (wood texture image) and duplicate it by pressing Ctrl + J for WIN or Cmd + J on a MAC then rename the layer “OUTSIDE“.


  • Duplicate it twice and rename the other one duplicated layer “INSIDE“.
  • Delete the shape layer (press DEL/Backspace).
  • Make sure that the OUTSIDE layer is above of INSIDE layer.

Photoshop Web Buttons Help

by amateurseverywhere

Excuse my rant,I also have a question:
Just first one comment regarding adobe photoshop tutorials all over the web. Well, 99.9% of them Suck!!
They look so cheap, you see these amateurs showing you how to make a 'texture', or a "cool" web button and they all look so unrealistic, and baaad, and amateurish!! Their "paper" textures don't even look like 'paper', at all, so why bother...nor do their revelations on how to create stone, wood or liquid textures in Photoshop come anywhere near realism. I am tired of that hype, where's the pro stuff. This mediocrity is all over the web.
I'm wondering whether there are any resources for quality tutorials on adobe Photoshop
