Photoshop 6

I have been playing around, trying to learn some of the new features in Photoshop 6, and I ended up with this speaker. 
Most of the effects in this tutorial are made from different Layer Styles.

You can also make this speaker with Photoshop 5.5, but then you'll have to insert your own values in the bevel and emboss options.
Well - have fun! 

Figure 1


Start with opening a new image, 250  x 250 pixels, white background.

Create a new layer and call it "circle".
Select the Elliptical Marquee Tool and create a circle about the size in fig. 1 (Press down the shift-key while dragging the selection to make a perfect circle). 
Fill the selection with black.
Now use the Elliptical Marquee Tool to create a new circle a bit smaller than the first one. Be sure it's placed in the center of the first circle and hit the Delete key.

You image should now look like figure 1.


On the "circle" layer apply these Layer Styles:
Fig. 2 & 3


Figure 4


I also stroke the layer with these settings:
Size: 1 px
Position: Outside
Opacity: 47 %
Fill type: Color
Color: Black

Your image should now look like fig. 4.

Figure 5


Create a new layer below the circle layer. 
I called this layer circle 2 (Yeah - I know - really original :o)

With the Elliptical Marquee Tool create a new circle a few pixels bigger than the first circle.
Select a dark brown as your foreground color (#1A1A1A) and a lighter brown as background color (#4D4D4D).
Select the Linear Gradient Tool and fill your selection going from the top to the bottom of your selection. Deselect.


On the "circle 2" layer apply these Layer Styles:

Fig. 6 & 7

Your image should now look like fig. 5.
