Thank you for expressing your opinion. I must admit that I tried to make only a few button tutorials and I know that they are not that excellent. We try to have something in every section. If you didnt like this one, that is your opinion. I deem you should be more tolerant though. I dont question your ultimate skills in PS, you surely ase an awesome person and graphic.
