I’ve been learning Photoshop for years (and I didn’t go to school or anything like that, just picked up things here and there) and I think I’ve gotten pretty good at it, not completely professional but I can make a 3D button in just a minute or so.
Anyways, it’s not that hard to do, let me show you how to make a very simple and basic 3D button in just 5 minutes of your time:
First, open up Photoshop. (duh!)
Next, hit Ctrl+N to create a new image. Make sure you start learning all the shortcuts in Photoshop, it will make your life easier.
