help with an effect

I've been trying for awhile to get this certain effect I've seen on graphics. I'm not sure what the effect is called but it makes the graphic look "shiny", or at least that's the best way I can word it. I'm not sure if it's a texture or something that can be achieved using what's available in photoshop.

I use Photoshop CS5, if that helps any. :)

Any help/suggestion is appreciated, thank you!

I've been using Photoshop CS2 foir quite some time now, but I've never come across this before.

The problem is, I've done a series of icons and a header from the same image I've edited, saved them in PNG. But when I upload them on a LJ post, they turn out like this: Whis is NOT what they look like on my notebook. I've already tried saving them as JPEG, same result, and the outcome is the same when they're uploaded on Photobucket.

Here is how it should look like, taken from a screenshot of my desktop:

How can I solve this? Thanks in advance!
