I just made an icon in this style and it totally works. Great tutorial.

How do I remove the white background when saving?

Thx a lot!! it's clear, concise and it works just fine!!!

I'm using Photoshop 7 on the PC and the process breaks down when I draw the elliptical marque tool to create create the glass effect. I draw the ellipse, selecting inverse and then nothing happens after I hit the delete key.

Can you suggest anything?
