I would like to create glossy 3d corners like on this site.  Does anyone know of a tutorial that teaches that technique?

    An easy way to get that look is to use bevel/emboss. Try the info at

    That works great on just one corner but you cannot do both corners that way or at least I couldn't figure out how.  It will bevel to one side or the other but not both.

    If you look at the example its not really embossed, its more curved edges.

    Easy way to do this:

    Make a vertical marque selection with some feather on the edges. (feathering depends on the resolution)

    Select the Dodge tool. If you are working on a dark color you need to have Range (you see it in the Control Bar) set to Midtones. When you go the selected area somewhat lighter than the surrounding color you can switch the range over to Highligths.

    This should get you going..

    was one option but a much harder one.  I found a simpler way to create the effect
