Simple glossy menu tutorial

Hello.  This is a very simple and useful way to design a nice menu.
1.       Create a new 600x100 Photoshop document.
2.       Grab the Round Rectangle Tool and draw a shape like this one:

The color is not important at this point.

4.       Right click again, select Blending Options, and use the following settings:

Right click on your gradient. Use these settings:

5.       Grab the Text Tool, and write some text for whatever buttons you need.

6.       Create some shapes, to use them as separators. Like these:

The lines were drawn with the Line Tool, using a 1px width:

For the first one, I’ve used white, and for the other one I’ve used black.
Bring them one next to the other like this:

Rasterize them both, select the one above, and press Ctrl E to merge the two layers. This will combine the two layers into one. Now duplicate the layer for how many times you need, and place them after the text like shown in my picture.
And you’re doneJ
