I required to create some “download buttons” for this blog. I didn’t have any appropriate Image creation/editing tool to create buttons and when searching the www, came across a good website called Da Button Factory which allows you to create buttons online. Salient features of Da Button Factory are:

  • The website is very clean, intuitive and simple to use.
  • Allows creation of 3 types of button : Rectangular, Rounded, Round
  • Allows creation of single colour and dual colour buttons.
  • Allows button to be integrated into your website as CSS code or an image (gif/png/jpg).
  • Allows customization of text, font, shadow, size, border, text padding and colour.

Using two colour gradient, you could create a button that is quite close to, if not like, the Web 2.0 buttons out there (colourful, glossy, shaded buttons).

A screenshot of Da Button Factory, taken while creating my download button is given below. It shows you the various options mentioned above. I opted for a PNG image, as it’s the optimal choice for small images with text (like buttons).
