I have a corporate logo with two colors and words - I'd like to convert it into a glass image. I need instructions, or a link to guide me either with Adobe Fireworks or Photoshop.

I've researched this online and haven't found a technique for conversion of an existing image with words. Thanks

Hi Osley, we will be glad to help. Unfortunately the term "glass image" means different things to different people.

If you might post an image or two of the look that you are going after, we will be more than happy to show you how.

And if you might share with us your logo or one very similar, all the better.

I've got an image similar in colors to:
www.justglass.com/documents/articles/inhouse/JustGlassPrintLogoVase.jpg

There's orange and white, with the text in grey.

I' looking to have it with a glass-glaze or frosted glass look, similar to an icon. Does this help?

Making something look like glass is a function of two things ... transparency and reflection.

One easy way is to put a white shape layer over the logo and make it almost transparent, say about 15% opacity and a Blend mode of Soft Light.  Then use the Gradient tool from opaque to transparent, and light direction adjustments if you wish.

Adding reflection gets a little more difficult.  

Here is one Photoshop tutorial on making glass effects.

There is also an article here with pointers to several different tutorials on making glass effects in Photoshop.

I use coral draw and to create a glossy glass style is just a mixture of darker light lines
put the light up top and makes it look like a reflection of light not hard to do at all.
Like this
glossyYou take image your alter the colour on the bottom and top
But it also depends on your current logo is letters or just a photo.
Mutli coloured?
