Apple Brushed Aluminum Photoshop Tutorial


I've just finished my new Photoshop tutorial and this time it won’t have lighting effects, with glows and sparks all over, however its is again a request from a user. Tom suggested if we could create a brushed aluminum texture similar to the Apple products.

There are some nice techniques applied on this tutorial, and I think it can be easily used to interface design and web design projects.

The tutorial will be published at soon I think. But I took some more time and created 2 desktop wallpapers and 2 iPhone wallpapers.
