Advice on creating new start orb

Morning all, i want to make it my task for the day to create a new start orb, i have bee watching lots of vids on youtube as well as reading the tut on here but must admit it sounds kinda confusing. I dont actually have photoshop and was wondering if it was possible to use a different app. Im looking to create an orb with the icon below.

Grand Theft Auto IV (GTA IV) - RocketDock.com

Hope someone can help

many thanks

That tool was meant to change,not create. In the tutorial,he use adobe photoshop to create the start button. and use the software to change the start button.
