1. New Document (whatever size you want the button to be. For the sake of this tutorial, I will make it a little bigger, I’m using 150×150) Fill the background with black.

2. Now use the rounded Rectangular Tool (Under the text tool) with a white foreground color, and make a shape like the one shown below. Make sure you rasterize the layer as well (Right click the layer, and select Rasterize Layer)
