Create Web Button using photoshop

In this tutorial, we will be creating a very sleek, smooth button that looks ideal and will beautify your webpage, unlike your average, conventional shiny web button. Here is the final result:

First, open a new document. Any size will do.
Make a new layer.
Take out your rectangular marquee tool, and put it to Fixed Size, with these settings.

Place the marquee anywhere you want on your canvas, and fill it with a color of your choice.

Now, type out your text. I used size 12 Visitor font. It’s best to use a pixel font, they make the next step so much easier.
Zoom in on the text.

To make it look like the text is sunken into the button, we will make a darker 1px line on the top and left of all possible lines in the text. It sounds confusing, but look at what I did in the picture.

And there you have it, a sleek, modern button!
