In this Photoshop tutorial we’ll be making a great, Star Logo Photoshop Glossy Effects, using the default Photoshop shapes, some layer styles, and simple effects. You can see what I made using this tutorial in the below image.
The Final Image That we are going to Design.
Start by making a new document in Photoshop, say around 450 x 450 pixels, use the default Resolution. I added a nice gradient into the background. (#71a001 to #8cbf13)
Next, find and get out the Custom Shape Tool, make sure you use these
settings. Go into the shapes tab at the top and find the five-point star shape.
Note: If the star or none of those shapes are shown, click the little arrow in the right corner of the shapes box and select “All” Before you make the shape set your foreground color to a very pale green color. (#edff7a)
Drag your shape onto the canvas, preferably in the middle area. (note: hold shift to make the star perfect)
To give your star some nice effect now, right-click the layer shown in the layer’s pallete, go into the Blending Options and apply these few layer styles:
