This tutorial is for beginners and it’s made in PHOTOSHOP CS3. A couple of days ago I saw some tutorials about ‘How to create user interface controller‘ and they were great so I thought that I should make one myself and then show it to you guys.
So in this tutorial I will explaine you step by step how to creat your own awesome amplifier button. Duration is approximately 15-20 minutes.
Open Photoshop and create a new document. I am using 900×600 pixels. After that using Ellipse Tool(U) create a circle. Hold SHIFT key in order to make a uniform selection. Place it in the middle. Rename new layer to Round Shape.
Open Layer Style by double click on selected layer. Check Gradient Overlay, double click on the Gradient color and change the colors so you have something like the image below.
Check Bevel and Emboss, Inner Glow and Drop Shadow and apply the same settings like images below.
Create a new layer and rename it Round Shape Top. Using Elliptical Marquee Tool(M) make a round selection. Hold SHIFT key to make a uniform selection and also hold SPACE BAR in order to drag it.
Go to Filter > Pixalate > Mozzotint > Type : Fine Dots
Go to Filter > Blur > Radial Blur > Amount : 100 ; Blur Method : Spin ; Quality : Best
Using Free Transform(CTRL+T) make the circle smaller just like the initial inner circle. You can do this by holding SHIFT + ALT. Change Opacity Layer to 24%
Using Ellipse Tool(U) create a small circle and call the new layer Dot. Open Layer Style by double click on selected layer, check Gradient Overlay, Outer Glow, Inner Shadow and apply the same settings like images below.
Press CTRL+R to see Rulers or go to View > Rulers. Also make sure you have Snap turn on. Drag two guide lines : one from the top and one from the left. Using Line Tool(U) – weight 4px – drag a dash. To make a copy of the first dash hold SHIFT+ALT go with your mouse over the dash and drag it away. Use this technique to make the rest of the dashes.
Go to Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Levels… Click on and set the settings like image below.
Go to Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Curves… Click on and set the settings like image below.
