This lesson will show you how to create a simple button or a set of buttons with Paint Shop Pro, using no other filters or effects than what is included in PSP.
First, open up a new image, 175 x 40, 16 million colors, background transparent.
Pick a color for your button with the Color Selector, and Flood Fill your image with your color using the flood fill tool. I used color #CAA4CA.
Go to “Selections/Select All” and put the “marching ants” around your image.
Now go to “Effects/Inner Bevel”.
Use the rounded bevel that looks like a slice of pie, and the following settings.
