    May be you find this kind of tutorial on other sites but I have written it myself for the first time :)

    This is what we are going to design:

    [​IMG]

    ---------------------------------------

    Step 1:

    Create a new document of any size and draw a circle in there.

    [​IMG]
    Step 2:
    Ctrl + Click the layer to make the selection and choose the Polygonal Lasso Tool [​IMG] and also choose the "Substract From Selection" Tool from the top menue [​IMG]

    Step 3:
    Now cut the selection as shown in the image below

    [​IMG]

    Now right click and select "Layer Via Cut". It will cut the selection from the rest of the circle.

    Step 4:
    Now select the layer of the top part of circle and press Ctrl T and right click > Flip Horizontal ... again Right click > Flip Vertical. It will give you an image something like this.

    Put the TOP part's layer above of the bottom's part of the circle.

    Step 5:
    Go to Layer > Layer Style > Gradient Overlay and choose the gradient of these colors

    [​IMG]

    Use Drop Shadow with following settings

    [​IMG]

    After doing the above settings, your image should look like this

    [​IMG]

    Step 6:
    Now adjust the top part and fit it correctly. and your folding circle is ready :)

    Here is my image

    wow Bhuntay, you followed the tutorial very nicely.

    I forgot to mention one thing that in Gradient Overlay you need to set the Angle to -58 and it will look same as mine.

    Try this and it should make your image OK :)

    I tried this and made a complete mess of it. I guess this is why I stay well away from Graphics :D

    Justin if you learn designing then it will be very helpful for you, since your also a webmaster and in my opinion a Webmaster should be basically all rounder :D So go for it ..
