How To Create This Button Effect In Psp

Hey everyone! I am a newbie here on the forums although I have been a member here for about a year. I am trying to redo some

Of my label designs for my business and would like to create this button effect. Some of you have some

Buttons on your signature lines. Is there a tutorial on how to do this in psp8? I am assuming that most use the tools created for photoshop. Are there tools that can be used in paint shop also to create this same effect? I have tries using the glass effect on eye candy (which I love) and also cutouts but it's not producing the look I am after. Does psp x4 have any tools like this? I am trying to decide if I want to purchase pspx4, alien skins eye candy or a student edition of adobe elements? Any help you all can give me would be great!

 

Thanks!

Tina

I think you can get a similar look with these styles. Scrapsimple Tools - Styles: Bubbles And Glass 6301 When I use it, I duplicate the layer and apply the style to the top layer. Go through the different style options and scale the effects as needed to get that look. :)

Whoops, I forgot you're using PSP..... I have no idea - maybe get the 30 day trial of Photoshop so you can use the style. It is super easy to use.

Thanks April. Iay actually just buy the photoshop elements program to create that look. It will be a whole lot less expensive than buying the eye candy program even though I like that program Alot too. I will check into a free trial for elements to give me a chance to play with it.

I think you'll find after buy PSE that you'll enjoy using it.

 

I don't know very much about PSP but does it have some built in styles? I know the built in ones in PSE aren't anywhere as cool as the ones in the Boutique here, but it's just and ida.

Psp does have a built in bubbles n balls effect. It's just not giving me the look I am wanting. I may just need to play around with it some more though- just learned it was there. Lol. I am a bit nervous about switching programs because i have used psp8 for about 9 years-never upgraded. But I love all the cool stuff that is for elements in the boutique. Can I transfer all my plugins, brushes and pic tubes to elements?
