Notice how the top part of the blue bar has a glassy light reflection look to it. I know that this is very popular on metal and glass button designes, but how do I do this cool effect in Photoshop?

there are several ways too approach this.

it appears on this particualr grapic (the top reflection area) they selected parts of the oval and used a gradient fill, then lowered the opacity in a seperate layer.

now on the bottom it appears that they used some layer style as well...possibly bevel and emboss.

check out this tutorial to get an idea on how to do that ... atar/12930
