No worries, I'm glad you like them Great job! That looks great. Just a tip though, as you may know, the order of the images goes:

Top image = Normal orb
Middle image = Mouseover orb
Bottom image = Pressed orb

The main emphasis usually goes on the mouseover orb So, in my opinion, the outer glow would be best on the middle image. But that's just me being picky! Really good job with those.

Edit: None of the above applies, you've changed the image since I started typing this
yah you are rite actualy on white background its not looking perfactely thats why i have changed the pic. and Thanks for the inspiration to make one my own.

It should be on a black background if you want it to be transparent. You'll need to set up an alpha channel to tell Windows which bit is transparent - on the alpha channel, black is transparent and white is visible. Take a look here for more info:
