Recently I found a tutorial on PSDTUTS about how to make an apple remote controller with Photoshop.
Like many other tutorials posted in that site I found the contribution very interesting, too bad their policy about sharing PSDs and other resources is turning into, let´s say, something less democratic... So, here there are some icons I made following that tutorial.
I skipped some steps and added a few of my own in the process of making the icons, so it is not an exact copy of what you can see in their page. Hope it will be useful in some way for you.
There are included 3 PNG icons with a resolution of 512x512px (Leopard Ready) and the PSD I used to make the icons for you to play around with layers and effects.
This file is free to use, redistribute, claim as own work and that kind of stuff, don´t need to give credit if used in any way, but please don´t use these files for monetary gains. That´s forbidden, it is all I ask for.
Yup man, I use to do the same thing with my stuff but many times I have to rasterize first because I like to work with shapes (to keep editing properties ) and sometimes when you add blending effects they change the values when you resize the layers (for example a 10px stroke is not the same at 2500x1600 than 1920x1200 but it keeps the same value for that, for not to talk about bevels...), so many times the result is better but you can´t edit the final outcome anymore in that final and smaller size. It would be so cool to have a feature like smart filters (in CS3) for blending options in Photoshop, doesn´t it? haha
