You can download them here, and just use them as-is. But these buttons are customizable using Photoshop. I lost ya, didn’t I? But I don’t know how to use Photoshop AND it’s expensive. If you have a blog or a website that you are using images on regularly, photoshop is for you. It’s going to take the look of your site to the next level. You can get photoshop elements for about $70 on amazon*. It’s pretty much photoshop lite. It’s cheaper and will fulfill most people’s needs unless you are a photographer, or want use it for video editing. You can also download the trial version for free to use for this tutorial.

If you are baller, alternatively you can get the full $600 version* or download the full trial.

You my friend are suffering from Photoshop-phobia. But I got you. You don’t have to fear the Photoshop. I’m going to take you step by step and show you how to change the font and colors of these buttons. I’ll also be making more Photoshop tutorials so you’ll be a wiz in no time. Let’s get started.

  1. […] If you don’t know Photoshop, don’t despair. Next week, I’m dropping a post with some ready-made buttons. You can use those as- is BUT I’m also going to give you the Photoshop file.

    • It depends on the rights to the image when you purchased them. If they are royalty-free then it’s probably safe to use. If it’s rights-managed (you bought it for a particular use) then it gets a little dicey.
