1) Can anyone tell me if there are any tutorials on the internet that'll teach me how to create images like the ones on www.boxedart.com & other sites

For Example:

http://www.boxedart.com/phpshop/images/head1.gif

http://www.boxedart.com/phpshop/images/head6.gif

http://www.stockedphotos.com/images/categories.gif

http://www.myoffers.co.uk/prizedraw.asp?pd=2144&pn=0&AreaID=53

Any graphics package.

2) I really like the look of 'win xp' style images....anyone know of a website where it has loads of these?

Thanks.

Most of the images you showed seem to have the reflective/glass highlights, so Im guessing youre refering to something like this.
There are some links to Photoshop tutorials below that show how to get those effects:

- http://www.minimalistic.dk/orb.htm
- http://www.v4images.com/tutorials/tutorials.php?id=tut-4
- http://www.project09.com/tutorials/Photoshop/alert-icon/
- http://www.webmention.com/tutorial.php?id=35

As for the XP icons, heres the perfect place: http://www.xp-icons.com
Also, here is a very good tutorial for making realistic icons which you can use as a guideline if you wanted to have a go at making your own: http://www.purephotoshop.com/article/97

if you go to adobe.com you can download a set of styles that will more than likely suit your needs.
it has all sort of properities that allow you to apply a glass-look effect, xp efect, mac effect etc...

these ar efound in the download section of the site....its been a while but look around the site, register and browse for styles....

good luck.
