    Ok mate. I'd rather teach you to fish, if you know what I mean
    First up I''l send you A smart object layer, that contains the 2 methods, described as best I can (with layer names). Are you familiar with the rest of the process? If you get the styles and PSD from the first post ready, I should have a link your way in about 10-15 mins

    The smart object is the layer called "Icon" in his PSD. We'll be looking at the icon I made for the Plex app (app store). I decided to post this here so others may benefit. I chose a simple icon, because the less layers the better

    1.) Download "Flite Icon [Plex].psd" from !!HERE!!
    2.) Open dD's (dansaDisco's) Flite template from his first post (just use the appstore [non-masked] one for the purpose of this guide.
    3.) Load up his styles by double clicking on the "Flite.asl" file included in his resources. If you can't see them in PS, then just go to Window->Styles
    4.) Open up "Flite Icon [Plex].psd" and duplicate the layer into dD's PSD (just above the included "Icon" layer). The easiest way to do this, is to drag my file from your desktop (or wherever its located), into the blank area of your photoshop window. Just make sure it's centred.
    5.) Now edit the layer by double clicking on the "Flite Icon Plex" Layer thumbnail. A dialogue box should appear, warning you about saving etc. Just hit OK.
    6.) You will now see a new tab open, that contains 2 folders of layers, and the background layer.
    7.) These are at the final 140px max dimension. So just remember that the 16px stroke, has to get applied at 200px max dimension.
    8.) The "Photoshop" method contains another smart object. This is the arrow layer with a 16px stroke. The reason it's a smart object, is so we can treat it as one complete object. This way, we can apply the sink style to this layer, even though it already has a style on it Get where I'm going with this?
    9.) You can open up the "sink" layer within the PS method, by double clicking on the thumbnail (as we did in step 5). You will see I have clearly labeled the layer, and if you edit the style (by double clicking on the layer [NOT the thumbnail], you will see that a 16px stroke has been applied.
    10.) You can apply this method to any flite icon (as far as I'm aware), and you'll hardly notice any difference to the end result. I used this method for the first half of my icons.
    11.) Just remember. When you're done with editing a smart object, you can save the changes simply by saving. Don't "save as". If you see the "save as" dialogue box when saving a smart object, you won't see the changes in the original document.

    Any questions, fire away, and I'll try and help. I'll even add screen shots to this post if needed. Thank you.

    I think youre looking at the guide as if it were exactly how you make an icon. Use it more as a guide. If you're trying to use a picture for an icon, then you have to turn it into a shape. You can use the magic wand tool, to select the shape you want, then add the 16px stroke. Say you want to do an icon for Facebook. Download a picture with the Facebook logo. Then magic wand the "F". Now that you have a shape selected, you can paste that onto a new layer. We are working with shapes instead of the usual images that take up a whole layer. It's not an easy cut and paste job, but if you keep at it, you'll see results.

    Do you mean It was lost when you applied the style? If so, it's because the sink style has a 0% fill. It's the sunk down outline you see around the colored glyph (main picture). Can you duplicate your smart object layer in a new document, and save as a PSD. Like I did with plex. Then post a link, or email it to me at [email protected]
    If you're determined enough, I'll find a way to help....it just may take a bit of work on both parts, so you'll have to persevere. Have you watched the PS part of dD's video tutorial? Just skip the first part of illustrator, and watch the second bit. I'll have you creating your own shapes in no time

    Lol this is frustrating because for some reason I have a feeling I'm missing a small step somewhere .... I created a new layer in the group photoshop method then paste the quick selection on the new layer then I add a 16px stroke which goes fine but can't figure out how to get the sink effect..... If that makes sense?

    Awesome work! There are some methods you'll pick up along the way, and you'll see your icons progress in no time. I still keep some of the first icons I made so I can see the progression I added some screens to my earlier post with the guide. Congratulations bro, you learnt heaps today. Thank you.

    I'm not the best at explaining things, or understanding them to be honest. I just pick apart other techniques and styles, to see what makes it look the way it does. For instance, there's a drop shadow on that sink style, that is set up so that it makes any colour underneath it brighter. This gives the illusion that light is hitting that lower edge I have "The Missing Manual" that's one of the simplest guides I've found. It comes in PDF format, and could be really handy.

    Yeah it definitely helps to have other people .psd's to look at .... I've been reading a lot online and watching YouTube..... I tried to see what books people recommend but there's so much info out there I couldn't figure out what to buy .

    He posted it Just download the icon, and make a new folder in bundles as follows:

    Bundle ID: com.facebook.Messenger
    Icon: [email protected]

    As its shown. Remember that its case sensitive, and to go into winterboard, and re-apply the theme it's in. This will clear the cache Thank you.
