    There are thousands of button tutorials online. Try Googling something like "photoshop button tutorial".

    This is the best reference article IMO about call to action:

    I know a guy who works in one of the biggest local online store with thousands sales per day. Their conversion rate changed by +5-7% after adding some cool glossy effect to their "buy now" button. That just won them few thousands dollars per day right away. Now i am trying to convince him to make it 20% bigger to see sales skyrocketing xD

    Personally, with such nice CSS3 effects available in all modern browsers, I'd be inclined to use that now, rather than an image.

    Google "Baymard Institute" and "buttons". They are usability guys.

    Epic Bagel is a company selling a product but they are also usability guys. Look at their buttons.

    If you can read Dutch I recommend reading Aartjan van Erkel. He also wrote a book (in Dutch) called Verleiden Op Internet (Seducing on the Internet) which discusses many things including calls to action.

    Design-wise, I remember Zurb making some neat CSS3 buttons, but now everyone's got those.
