For those of you who are trying to design a website but can’t afford Photoshop to make shiny buttons that look cool, you’re in luck! I, like many of you, started out designing websites long before I could even think about purchasing the $500+ Adobe Photoshop. During that period of time, I found some many cheap and even free Photoshop alternatives. (Eventually, I will put together an article specifically dedicated to all the Photoshop alternatives I found – so stay tuned!)
Anyway, My Cool Button is one of the neatest ways to create buttons online. It costs a mere $5 a year and is definitely worth it! With My Cool Button you can create shiny buttons, web 2.0 buttons, ribbons for your buttons, and even 3D buttons. And here’s the best part – My Cool Button is an online system and requires no download! These buttons can be easily customized with icons or text and are all downloadable in transparent PNG formats.
