    Unless you've been living under a rock for the past 6 month to a year, it's hard to go through a day of surfing the net without encountering one of these star sticker on a site (see attachement star-14.jpg).

    So ... this tutorial will show you how you can make your site a bit more 2.0 style with one of these and trust me when I say this ... it's the easiest thing in the world :P

    Our canvas

    Let's start off by opening a new window of 300x300 (in pixels)

    Attachment 3422

    Attachment 2479

    Choose your tool

    Next, let's change our color to something different than black. I chose #cc0000. You can pick a nice bright orange or green too.

    And create a new layer while you're at it:
    Attachment 2480

    OK, now choose the polygon tool Attachment 2481 and click on the star checkbox in the option at the top Attachment 2482. Now put something like 20 for the sides Attachment 2483.

    Let's start drawing

    Simple enough ... create your star the same way you would a circle or rectangle Attachment 2484.

    That's it!

    Attachment 2485

    Style it!

    Let's style that star a bit.

    Go to Layer > Layer Style > Gradient Overlay and put in the values as in Attachment 3430. For the gradient, choose the color #990000 for the second maker of the gradient Attachment 3431.

    Result: Attachment 2487

    Go to Layer > Layer Style > Drop Shadow and put in the values as in Attachment 2488.

    Result: Attachment 2489

    Next, add some text, angle it and add an outer glow to it and you've got your Web 2.0 Star Sticker.

    Final results: Attachment 2490

    The above statement is seen to be contradictory. The situation is very critical and need an experience complainer to resolve it.

    Not sure what they mean by this, but I think TheGame should be replying... LOL

    I will keep it short and sweet!

    How dare you waste our time, and, How come this post has not been vanished?

    I am sure Rick will get on it as soon as he can! LOL
