cheers...
What about:

Link on deviantART

In all honesty, I'm not really that happy with how the third one came out. I was trying a trick I normally reserve for larger resolution images, but with a bit of tweaking it does sometimes work on lower res..... Oh well, I figured somebody out there would like it.

By the way, I keep uploading my work to dA because I have a profile there and like to keep everything in one place. If anybody has trouble downloading from there (not likely, but you never know...), let me know and I can attach the files here.

They look pretty good to me! I didn't add your link since I'm quoting you in this post.

Edit: I can confirm that they look good and cause no adverse affects.

Thanks for the shots on a taskbar; I guess I could actually make the two button-style ones smaller though, doesn't look quite right that large.

If I had to try explain all the points of inner and outer glow in PhotoShop, it would take me hours..... Here's a good description of both for you: link

And thanks for all the comments... *small ego boost*

Edit: One tip I can give you that I haven't ever come across in tutorials, is how to make the inner and outer glow work by enhancing each other.... Once you've read up and know how to apply them, try this: create a slim outer glow in the main colour you want, then create an inner glow of the same size (or a fraction smaller), and set that to a slightly lighter variation of the outer colour. That gives the glow more 'depth'.

Sweet... I love the first one. Just a note; they need to be in bitmap format to use as a Start Orb though, might want to save them again as BMP and upload them in a zip or rar file.
