Editors' review

Folks seeking an easy way to design buttons for Web sites will do well to check out ButtonGadget. We're fans of the well-designed tabbed interface, which presents easily accessible icons for all major functions on the main window. Our main quibble is that you cannot resize the program to a full-screen view. You'll find three main sections for adding button text, choosing images, and viewing your finished product. You modify the button text by specifying size, style, alignment, and font, though it's annoying that you have to keep your mouse button depressed to do so. The program lets you use your own images for the button's background, as well as customize background and text color. When you're finished, you can export your new button as a PNG or as a customizable JPEG. However, we wished you could change the button's size or create several at once. We also were baffled by the complete lack of help files. Webmasters who can live with the constraints described above will find ButtonGadget a timesaving tool.

    May 01, 2006   |   By Da1SharpshooterGrl

    Version: ButtonGadget 32.0

    Pros

    Trial Version have a few decent buttons. The instalation was smooth and the application runs fast. The generator will do the work.

    Cons

    You can go online and download more buttons for the editor on their site, but still the variety is limited on trial version.

    "if you want to do buttons that are 4 image standard it is good"

    November 23, 2002

    Version: ButtonGadget 32.0

    Summary

    it need to have more functionality, for example, I wanted to create a simple nicelooking button, but had no roller over functionality, did not see a easy way to do this with out copying the image to all 4 buttons, which is a waste of space, but if you are doing 4 button roller over, it is very nice

    "professional button graphics...easy!"

    November 12, 2002

    Version: ButtonGadget 32.0

    Summary

    I'm not a photoshop guy, so making my own buttons is a little out of my league. I'm a programmer so this gives me the ability to add really cool button images to my programs quickly.

    You download button templates from the site and it saves them locally, so i just downloaded them all and don't have to go back till new ones are added...cool
