    I was wondering, how do you personally make the icons? Do you draw them pixel by pixel, or draw the background then put layers on top? And which program do you use? (I'm assuming photoshop).

    One layer at a time with Photoshop. Pixel-by-pixel would be way too time-consuming.

    How do you get the correct shape and the white reflecty glow on the top of the icons?

    I don't really ever make default-looking icons anymore, but I used to use the PSD I've attached.

    Thanks, I'll look at it once I reinstall PS (does PS Elements 4 even work of Win 7?)
