Free trial, perhaps?

You're off to a good start, anyway. There are plenty of free tutorials online, if you're interested. Just do a search for "Photoshop Tutorials" and see what comes up.

A reflection would look nice. Like perhaps make a layer underneath the button layer, and make it white with an opacity of 20 or so, and have it only go up to the middle of the image. Then make a new layer based off of the button, but flip it, and apply a gradient while adjusting opacity.

Looks good for a first wallpaper.. I recommend Photoshop CS2 for Dummies. It's around $20 and it's a great reference manual that explains everything in pretty simple terms.
