  • Tutorial for making button sets?

    I am looking into trying to make my own button set, as I definitely have the time. However, I hear that most people use Photoshop, which I don't have.

    The only paint programs I have are PhotoImpact and Jasc Paint Shop Pro 7. So I need to know two things:
    [list=1][*]Can I even make a good-looking button set with one of those programs?[*]Where are some starting tutorials or helpful places for button set newbies to look?[/list=1]

    All help is greatly appreciated.

      But that is a tutorial for .psd files....which Paint Shop Pro 7 doesn't support.

        FWIW my button sets were made using the PSD files with PhotoImpact 6.0. PI wouldn't let me duplicate the look of the original text on the buttons, but other than that it does a pretty good job.

          Where can I find the PSD graphics? Or do I have to create everything from scratch? I wanna play around with an existing one...but I don't know where to get it.

            You can download the PSD files from the Members Area.

              Crap....my username is just on another guy's license...he is the one who has the license and such, but my name is on it so I can download files from vBulletin.com and vBulletin.org....how would I go about downloading those files in my situation?

                  Is there any way he would be able to download them then send them to me via e-mail? I'm an admin along with him at a forum...is that possible?

                    I think "offically" your not supposed too..... But, as long as you don't post the psd's on the web for download, I don't think they'll say anything

                      Lol...I'm not smart enough to know how to post PSD's on the web to download. Anyways, I won't bug him tonight about it...I've already got tons of stuff to do, and I can't say I want to sit in front of a computer screen for hours, creating a button set.

                        download?

                        I don't see the psd download anywhere. I checked member area but it wasn't obvious.

                            Thank You

                            Now all I need to do is buy the picture software.
