Custom iOS 4 navigation bar button

Shot 1279559403

I started with the excellent Teehan+Lax PSD. My goal: to match the Apple iPhone 4 Simulator.

After resizing the button @2x I reduced the size of the drop shadow (pale highlight below button), inner shadow (top), outline stroke, and also added a separate inner shadow inside the bottom half of the button.

It's amazing to see that Apple went so far as to tweak these individual button styles for the Retina Display.
