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.

(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.

Happy site building

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.
