Simple Glossy web 2.0 blog logo Tutorial

This tutorial will explain you the easiest way how to make glossy web 2.0 stylish logo for a blog. Simple web image designing technique using Photoshop. I use Photoshop CS2 on this example. As we know that now a days web 2.0 stylish design can be found a lot on the net. So now we'll try to remake our blog to be web 2.0 using cool glossy logo for your blog name. The final result should be like this.

web 2.0 logo how to tutorial

1.Open up new Photoshop document. You can easily do this by hitting Ctrl+N on your keyboard. Set it up like this one below. Just a note, I use 400x400px document just to make us easier in working with this Photoshop.

new photoshop document

2. Using text tool, now type your blog name. A word for your blog logo. Set your text font as illustrated below. I use Calibri 48px Bold as my text font. To make it more web 2.0 stylish, you have to use some simple fonts. Suggestion; Calibri, Tahoma, Trebuchet MS, and Segoe UI are working fine.

type your blog name

3. We have to rasterize our text layer. We can do this by clicking Layer menu than Rasterize Type.

4. Before we move up around, we need to set Foreground and Background color at first. Now set it to #ffb60e for Foreground and #ffce00 for background color. We need to do this step for our text gradient at next.

Setting Foreground and Background color

5. Now we'll give some effects to our text layer. Bring Blending option dialogue up by right clicking on the text layer and choose Blending option. Or we can do this by clicking Layer menu, than Layer Style, now choose Blending option. Check drop shadow option and set its attributes like below illustration.

6. We'll also give it outer glow effect. Just set it like illustration below.

7. Now it is time to add one of glossy element. Give our text layer gradient effect by checking Gradient overlay tab. Don't forget to use Foreground to Background overlay. See illustration below.

8. Last effect to add should be Stroke effect. Set stroke size to 5px and set its color to #e58100. Now just press OK button to confirm it.

9. From this step your blog logo should be a bit like this one. It is web 2.0 enough but we'll redesign it to be more stylish. Yes, by giving it a glossy effect.

10. We can make such glossy effect in very simple easy way. Now create a new layer by hitting Ctrl+Shift+N on your keyboard press than OK or just Enter. Now make creative selection using Lasso tool. Use your bright creative brain, just an improvization like this one. I'm not so good on this step, so use your own.

11. Oke you are good. Next step is more simple step. Fill this selection with white (#ffffff) color. Do this by clicking Edit menu than Fill. Or simply hit Shift+F5 buttons. After you do this right now set this layer opacity to 35%.

From many steps above we know that making a web 2.0 logo for a blog is not so hard to do. You can improve your creativity in using style, colors, and blending option settings. I know you can do better than me. So if you feel this tutorial is good and you've made a logo from this tutorial, feel free to post it here. Just comment this tutorial.

How to add bookmarker widgets in Blogger

This tutorial will explain simple way to add cool social bookmarker widgets to Blogger pages. In this case we'll use simple Blogger Plugin from BlogSocializer. This plugin allows us to add nine popular bookmarkers button on every pages of our blog. Including Digg, Technorati, Delicious, Yahoo! MyWeb, Google Fusion, Blink, Furl, Simpy, and Stumble upon. Here we go..

1. Go to your Blogger Dashboard. Than click manage layout of your desired blog.

Layout menu in blogger dashboard

2. You'll be in Template page at Page Element Tab. Now click [Add a Page Element]. Just choose where you'll place the widget is. In this case I set it at bottom of every post, so I'll place it below Posting Blog coloumn (See picture).

Add a page element

3. A popup window will appear. There you can choose what kind of page element you want to add. Now select [HTML/JavaScript] element. Than click [Add to Blog] button. A 'Configure HTML/JavaScript' page will appear, leave it first.

Choose page element

4. Go to BlogSocializer and get the code there. Click and copy the given code.

copy BlogSocializer code

5. Go to popup window again. Fill in title of element first than paste the code at 'Content' area (Right click and paste). Lastly, just click [Save Changes] button.

Paste the code

6. Now open your blog and test the widget. Below is example of working BlogSocializer in my blog. You can try how easy this widget in use by submitting this page to Digg, Technorati, and Delicious.

Demo screenshoot

Conclusion.
BlogSocializer is the easiest and simple way to add bookmarker widget in Blogger based page. This Blogger plugin is free to use. I know there are other bookmarker plugins such AddThis.com and Sharethis.com but I still suggest you to use BlogSocializer. Why? because with BlogSocializer we can display the true buttons of originally bookmarker sites. Not other flip button. So benefit of displaying those buttons is to make our blog looked like more cool. Just as Wordpress bookmarker plugin.
