Here's the how-to for making a button:
1. Go to PickMonkey and click on Edit a Photo.
2. Choose your photo/picture.
Now we can see our picture on the screen and a whole host of different actions available on the left hand side of the screen. If you scroll down to the bottom of that left hand menu you will find the option to resize your picture. Click on that.
3. Now you can type in the pixel size you would like your picture to be. I tend to make my buttons sized to 190 x 160. You go with whatever works for you. Once you're happy, click "apply".
Here is your picture, now at the right size. Next step, effects! There are loads of effects available here. Have fun choosing your favourites.
4. I chose the "Dusk" effect for my button and clicked "apply".
5. Now it's time to add a frame. Again, there are loads to choose from. I am loving the craft scissors ones at the moment. Click on the square "frames" button on the far left, then choose your design. You can also change colours to match too! Just click "apply" when you're happy with it.
Now it's time to add some text!
6. Choose your text then click "add text". A little box will appear which you can click in and type directly into.
7. You can change your colour and size until your text looks how you want it to.
8. Click save, give it a name and find a place for it on your computer and you're all done! TA-DA!
Here's the know-how and code you need for installing it and sharing it on your blog:
