  • Release: VButton

    This is a little app to make all your buttons for you.





    It uses photoshop actions to do all the work, but you can set font colours from within the app.

    It also creates any extra "Header" buttons you require, eg Links, Files etc.

    It requires Photoshop 6 to be installed, and the photoshop files from the VB Graphics Kit to be extracted directly in C:\Vbutton.

    It's written with Visual Basic 6, so normal runtime files are required.

    There's not a lot of error checking in this version, but I wanted to get some feedback.

    The finished buttons are output to C:\Vbutton\Output.

    Have a play and give me some feedback, and any suggestions for the next version.

    (BTW. This is my first attempt at a Visual Basic proggy, so be nice )

    Minor Update:
    Checks that the required VB Graphics Kit Files are in the correct place.
    Color Picker remembers colours.
    Fixed a bug in the actions for newfolder.gif etc.
    Tested and Working with Photoshop Elements


    Another Update:
    Now does text layer colours
    Includes Hot & New folder Icons
    Does Icons & Smilies
    Output to C:\VButton\images with subfolders for icons & smilies for easy file copy
    Deletes action files after use in Photoshop ready for next use


    Another Update:
    Now uses "sets", where output is under the C:\Vbutton\set folder
    Now saves a copy of the modified PSD files for future use
    Creates a txt file record of the colours used
    Progress window added


    Bug fix done!
    Attached Files

                  Very cool! but everytime I run it I get a Runtime Error '53' File Not Found. Hopefully you can sort this out because I have no idea what that is. And none of the buttons are exporting to the output folder. As soon as it finishes making all the buttons, PS closes out and the error pops up. I look in the Output folder and there's nothing.

                      Nice app well done but I do feel as though you have robbed Ball Bouncer for some of the credit for this as you have used an idea he brought forward and have given him no credit whatsoever for it.

                      I realy hope you will correct this by giving him a mention in the program as from the posts I have seen he has given much imput into this.

                        Now I'm getting these run-time errors -
                        429 -- "ActiveX component can't create object"

                        Could this be because of Norton AntiVirus 2k1?

                          I doubt it, the actions are for the Photoshop 6 VB Graphics set.

                              The files are actuall saved in C:\Vbutton and moved to C:\VButton\Output after Photoshop closes.

                              I had this problem when the files that are being moved/deleted were still in use by Photoshop.

                              Should be able to sort this out in the next version.
