What type of software (graphic software) does your computer have? Graphic Converter? Adobe PhotoShop? PhotoDeluxe? That really is where you would need to start---to get a software that "manipulates" graphics---not just pictures.

Then it's similar to making a document....create a new file with the size (dimensions) you want; cut and paste pics into it; add some text; save as .gif or .jpg, and v'iola!

Having said that, it's not the ONLY method, but it's what I know. Perhaps there are some online sites where you can create graphics without needing sofware..... One "fun" site I use with my webdesign students is http://www.flamingtext.com FUN little "wild" graphics.....

Hi Nancy, that button looks like it was created in Corel with picture tubes. Not hard if you have the program.

I don't know how to create buttons such as these, but I am enjoying the tips and tutorial right along with you...

I am working on adding a button and found your site. I have been looking at different websites and am almost there- but still not sure my next step. Take a look at my blog and let me know where you need to start and I'll help. Anyone else out there that can tell me how someone can take my button link?? Thanks!
