  1. please can use explain step 2 how to apply layer styles
    "Fill background with white color #FFFFFF, then then apply following layer styles."

    1. Fill your layer with white. Shift+Backspace to bring up the Fill window then select White and then click OK.

      Right-click on the layer then click "Blending Options". Checkmark Gradient Overlay then click on the word Gradient Overlay. Copy the settings in the screenshot.

  2. Fantastic tutorial thank you - I am an AI user normally and learning to draw in PSD to get better effects, so this was just what I needed!

  3. It's good but the tutorial could use some work. Such as size of objects and the placement of the gradient sliders.

    1. no he can't. this is way too easy. too simple to understand. don't know how fools like you cant do it... gawsh

  4. I've been working on this forever. And I still have nothing resembling a donut... Oh wait... Wrong tutorial... My bad... Or is it?

  5. This was fantastic! Thank you so much for taking time to write all this. I can't even begin to think how much time it took you. I followed the tutorial until the end and got a great result. I had some challenges with screen where there was this annoying light circle in the middle. I couldn't figure out why it happened but eventually fixed it with the white dot that came over it. Because of this my screen came out slightly different but still looking great. I uploaded the result to my blog and gave link back to this page. I don't know if it's okay to leave my link here but I will try:

  6. my friend says to challenge myself. but what does he know, right? this is pretty challenging... mehbe... didn't do it... ill do it now...

    1. I personal prefer photoshop's control for gradients and other digital effects. Especially for modern graphics. Or maybe I'm just more used to photoshop's functions.
