Creating Vista buttons made easy

Vista Buttons screenshotIf you are one of the many people who have been left unimpressed with Vista but like the look of some of its features, Vista Buttons is for you. It helps you create Vista/XP/Win98 and Mac style rollover buttons and drop down menus with relative ease. Normally you’d need a fair amount of Javascript or CSS knowledge to create such buttons for websites but Vista Buttons is based solely on a simple image editor. The choice of templates and bases is certainly impressive and the developers claim the program features more than 500 buttons, 100 sub-menu designs and 50 ready-made samples.

This is more than enough to create a really cool looking website menu or some swish desktop buttons although some of the designs are a bit dull. The styles available include Vista, XP, Win98, Mac, Aqua buttons, round, glossy, metallic, 3D styles, tab and drop-down menus. Obviously, the best thing is that the program is designed for complete novices. You don’t require any HTML, JavaScript or CSS skills to create some really professional looking results. Just make sure you refer to the developer website frequently for instructions on how to get started as the program is lacking in ‘wizards’ to help you get going.
