The Button Effect

The Button Effect

Would you like to make really nice buttons for your Web page? I’m always looking for easier ways to make buttons for my own Web page, so when I found this Web site, I couldn’t wait to share it with all of you!

It’s so easy to use too! All you have to do is pick the settings for your button, finish it, click on the Download button and then save it.

There are many different settings to choose from and they’re divided into three sections: Text, Size and Colors.

Text – Here you can completely manipulate the text on the button. The default text for your button will read “Sample,” so to change that, just delete the text and type in your own on the form. Now, select the font you want to use, as well as, the font size. Next, align your text on the button. Choose right, left or center and then either top, middle or bottom. All that’s left for this step is to check the boxes for bold, italic or underlined.

Size – This section will determine the size of the button, whether your button will be round or square and whether or not it has a border. You’ll set the height and width first. The larger the number you put in, the bigger the dimension will get. The corner radius option sets the curve of the edges for your button, so if you want a round button, you’ll use that option. Should you want a square button, make sure you check the box for No Radius.

Colors – This section is my favorite! This is where you’ll set all the colors for your button, as well as, what sort of fade the color will have on the button. To change the color of each option, you’ll need to click on the color box next to it. That will make a color box pop up for you to select the color you want. When you’ve found the color you want, click on the Save button and you’ll head back to the Colors option to change the other settings.

The nice thing about the creation process is that with every change you make, your button changes right before your eyes so that you don’t have to wonder what it will look like. Once you have it the way you want it, click on the Download button beneath the button you created and then save it to your computer.

This is an excellent Web design tool. I hope you’ll bookmark it for future use!
