    These are very good and the site has a lot of them!!
    I wanna know that by which software i will be able to create them?
    I tried them in photoshop but never got that glossy look!!
    If there is a software avaliable for it then what is it and can you recommend any tutorial for it??
    I know photoshop and bit of flash.

    Use photoshop to make those images with some rendering, 3d and lighting effects etc then use samstoned's program to create them into icons..

    I think you should be able to do it all (the 3d/gloss stuff) in photoshop.. read up on some guides and tutorials..

    what version of photoshop do you have?

    Well for starters there's a great wealth of info in the Adobe forums (sorry, forgot the link at the moment) and also have a google for Photoshop CS2 tutorials or something..
