Button

For this tutorial you will need:
PSP 8 or 9

 

THIS TUTORIAL WILL SHOW YOU HOW TO MAKE A SIMPLE BUTTON THAT YOU COULD USE FOR A WEB PAGE

GO TO FILE - NEW 175 X 40 - TRANSPARENT BACKGROUND

FLOOD FILL WITH A COLOUR OF YOUR CHOICE - I USED #808080

GO TO EFFECTS - 3 D EFFECTS - INNER BEVEL AND TYPE IN BELOW SETTINGS OR USE YOUR OWN - CLICK OK

G0 TO IMAGE - ADD BORDERS - TYPE IN 5 - USE THE SAME COLOUR AS YOUR BUTTON

 

CLICK OK

SELECT YOUR MAGIC WAND ICON AND SELECT YOUR BORDER

APPLY THE SAME INNER BEVEL AS ABOVE  - THEN SELECTIONS - NONE

YOU SHOULD NOW SAVE YOUR BUTTON AS A BLANK 

RE OPEN IT AGAIN

YOU CAN NOW ADD SOME TEXT TO YOUR BUTTONS AND PERHAPS A TUBE

I USED THE SAME BEVEL SETTINGS FOR BELOW BUTTONS AND FOR MY TEXT I ADDED A DROP SHADOW

THIS ONE WAS SIZE 100 X 100 AND I FILLED IT WITH A GRADIENT
