Creating a Website Link Button

Hey,

Somebody at school asked me today how I created the cool button for my website. Well here's how.

1. Open Photoshop and create a new image, about 88x31 pixels. This size is commonly used.


2. Next, Open up and add a small recognizable logo. I used the Dino.

Place it appropriately.

3. Add text, I used Tahoma and the colour scheme of this website.

Different sized text always looks good. I used Anti Aliasing to get smooth corners.

4. The final step is to save it out as a Gif. I used 128. Take your pick. A .jpg could also be used.


5. Viola. You can now place this cool little link button all over the web.
