Again, let’s open up Paint Shop Pro. Just as we did with our header in Lesson #5, let’s open up a new image but with the dimensions of 125 width and 50 height pixels.
We need to add a background first, so I am going to make mine the same color as my blog outer-wrapper. Forget where the outer-wrapper color is located? Check how we changed the colors in Lesson #2.
To make your background a specific HTML color code, find Materials on the top right hand corner of Paint Shop Pro. Double click on the first square. A box should pop up with the HMTL color code at the bottom. Replace the color in the box with the color you want your background to be. Click OK.
We are now ready to put the button on our blog. Feel free to make as many buttons as you’d like. It looks better with five or six than one or two. Tips for New Bloggers has a great tutorial on setting up a horizontal navigation bar. This is the tutorial I used. You can view all of the steps, here.
Now, next time you want to update the look of your blog it won’t seem as overwhelming. It really is fun and satisfying to see all of your hard work pay off. Enjoy your new blog!
