Get to grips with Photoshop’s various tools to create a detailed and vibrant radar icon.
The icon we’ll be creating features a typical green radar with a vibrant illuminated screen. Draw a circular selection within the area of the outer ring, then fill a new layer underneath the ring with a green gradient. Draw another selection within the confines of the outer ring, then select the fill tool, change the drop down menu to Pattern and select the recently created pattern swatch. Use the Single Row and Single Column selection tools to draw horizontal and vertical lines over the document. Add a layer mask to the lines layer and fill it entirely with black to render everything invisible.
Draw two circular selections aligned to the centre (Click+drag from the centre guides while holding ALT), then right click and select Stroke to give them a 1px white outline. CMD-click the outer ring layer thumnail and add in an extra selection to surround and delete any unwanted excess from the radar sweep layer.


Use the brush tool to dab spots on the radar, then give them an extra vibrant glow using the Outer Glow effect from the layer style window. This leaves our cool little radar icon complete ready for exporting as a transparent PNG and putting to use as a fully working icon file in your favourite app, or as some kind of interface icon on your web app or web site. Iggy is a designer who loves experimenting with new web design techniques collating creative website designs. Line25 was built in March 2009 as a place to share web design ideas and inspiration through articles, tutorials and examples of stunning site designs. We’ll build the icon over multiple layers with the help of gradients, brushes and layer style effects. Subtle gradients help add depth to the icon while the scanlines pattern and soft glows on the screen elements really help add a touch of realism.
Choose colours from black to mid-green to a very light green and select the radial gradient option. Change this to Overlay to allow the colours to interact and produce a vibrant green effect.

The final icon would look great in your dock as a Mac application or used to create an icon for your iPhone app.
You can then drag out guides from the side rulers (CMD+R) and snap them to the transformation handles.
