If you’ve seen Web2.0 elements on the web, tried creating them yourself, and end up being unhappy with the results, just watch this tutorial.
There are many ways to create Web2.0 elements in Photoshop. This tutorial will present one of them, just to give you a kick start. The effect is fully customizable because it is based on Blending Options such as Gradient Overlay, Stroke and Drop Shadow.
Above that, this tutorial also comes with After Effect version for creating this effect by using one of my presets, that you can find in my other tutorial called Photoshoping in After Effects.
