    I reckon it has probably been done with a combination of Illustrator and Photoshop. Try this site for some good tutorials. http://www.screamdesign.com/ http://www.ultimate-photoshop.com/

    The logo on the page you mentioned was almost certainly created using Photoshop. The 3D effect could be created by repeatedly rendering lighting effects with texture channels on to different layers. The shadow also helps to create the 3D effect, and this is much simpler to create with gaussian blur.

    It looks like the banner has been created in one and then sliced, using something like fireworks or Adobe Image ready to create a table.

    I've got some experience of creating graphics like this, if you need any advice feel free to get in touch.
