Hello all

I had received at least 4 emails in the last 24 hours from fellow Synthasite members asking how I did my red buttons on my site so I am posting this to the top...;) Usually I answer back to those who email me with the direct link to my tutorials in the forums but as I am getting more and more interest lately I felt it best to share it here.

If you have many buttons to produce it can be labor intensive and take several hours. However, if you have under 12 its a piece of cake and the end result is very eye catching. You can see my site for an example of what you can produce. http://honeybearplayhomes.synthasite.com

(Button Generators)

This one is the mouse over button generator I used to produce my buttons.

I used the many Buttons, badges, borders contained here...

The following link it a tutorial for implementing the mouse over buttons. Please do read through the following post because all the info you will need is all contained in it...

Forsite has a tutorial I have linked to on my very own Links page on my site.

Just an FYI - Smashupgraphics is "Under Construction" presently and when I d/l the button generator "free-buttons.exe" and installed it I found out that it's only a trial. Then you have to purchase it. It said something about "Vista" so maybe it has something to do with the OS????? Don't know bit I just thought I'd pass the info along.
