    My first attempt at a tutorial.

    This can be used on AppStore icons. Enjoy.

    I would put a gradient over that oval. Otherwise it looks unnatural.

    viva la revolucion.

    anywho... too glossy, i tend to just use the round selection tool but whatever. also, use a gradient if you're going to leave the opacity so high.

    Like they said. I use a FG to Transparent gradient and so it a few times then lower the opacity alot.
