Enjoy. All are free to use them. Right click the ones you wish to have and select "Save Picture As ..."

Created in Fireworks 4.1

They're not bad :) I'd reccomend working on a transparent background though as this will only then work for people with black backgrounds :)

Nice buttons! But as Mist said, put them on a transparent background. :)

Thanks for the comments!

As for putting them on transparent bg's, I've tried and failed. I give them a transparent baclground and save it in GIF format, but the background always becomes solid white. Help!

I'm using Fireworks 4.

Fireworks is evil - you're best getting photoshop cs - it's far more powerful :)

I have Photoshop 6.0 but for web work I've always found Fireworks to be the easiest to do what you want. Much easier to create buttons in fireworks than in photoshop, even though both of them aren't very hard.

I have to disagree there. Photoshops facility to work layer by layer is so much more user-friendly. Copying layer styles and such. Also it's so easy to create buttons with transparent backgrounds. On top of that I do folders in one psd and have the fire for hot or whatever and the dot for the relevant folder icons so I just make a layer visible and voila there is a new button :)

I'm using Paint Shop Pro (7) and I think it's really easy to use. The fx-plugins are photoshop compatible, It can do layers. It's much cheaper than Photoshop too.

On a lot of forums you can see gradient colours being used in the strips and categories. Now I know how to make a gradient, but how do i get them into the table, with buttons on top of them where needed? (xcuse my english)
