Alright, ready? Select Custom Shapes. Load up the Symbols collection. Choose Bull’s Eye.
Holding down Shift to keep it in proportion, drag out a Bull’s Eye shape on a new layer:
Add in the following Gradient Overlay:
Drag the Bull’s Eye between the Highlight and Background layer. Again, select the Vector Mask of the Bull’s Eye layer.
Now to transform the Bull’s Eye into an RSS icon! Select the Pen Tool. This time, choose Subtract from Shape Area.
Now mold out your RSS Icon. Follow the pen path like I have here – hold down shift when making the horizontal and vertical lines to keep them straight:
When you’re finished subtracting everything you don’t need, you’ll end up with your RSS icon as shown here!
And there you go. Just select the layer and scale/move it into place. After that you can scale your folder to whatever size icon you need, and adjust the colours of the Circle layer as well. Make sure to download the PSD file for this tutorial, which includes a whole whack of PNG RSS icons for you to use!
