    some glassy looking button I made in Adobe Photoshop CS3

    I made this by following a tutorial which can be found on www.pixel2life.com.
    Today, I still am a total Photoshop newbie so I'm actually even happy that I made it until the last step, usually I give up if I don't understand a step which I weird enough didn't do this time.

    here is a picture:



    just one question; how do I remove the grayish looking background so I can actually use it?

    when you first create a document you should set the background as transparent
    if you already made a document you can just create a new layer and put it at the bottom of all the layers and delete the previous background.
    You must save the file as .gif, .png, .tiff or a PSD

    but the tutorial's shown the end result just like mine looks just a bit smaller.

    here is the original tutorial btw http://www.pixel2life.com/viewtutori..._glass_button/

    you just set your picture size bigger at the start thts all.
    If you want the background smaller use the crop tool.
    Or if you want the whole picture smaller go to image then image size and change the values

    Didn't you use different layers??
    Did you do anything on the background layer?? if not delete it and make a new layer and put it at the bottom of all the layers and tht's u done
    Then save it with the correct file type as i said before
