you can easily add the picture under the glassy gradient...The only problem you will ever have with is that you add a primarily white picture underneath...then you loose the gradient effect. Just always make sure your glossy gradient is on top of everything else. :)

This is what I was looking for,the other tutorial I just needed out of the blue.But this one is great! Mine never looked glassy..LOL
I do have one question.If I were to add an pic to it,how would that work?
I am thinking about just putting it under the second layer,but then the gradient effect gets lost.... Any help would be love(ly) XD
