Before we start constructing our menu in Flash, we first need to create our buttons and button cover in a graphics package. It can be constructed just as easily within Flash, but I have chosen a 3rd party graphics package to give the graphics a bit more this case I have used Fireworks 3 (as it is a macromedia product and integrates seamlessly with Flash and Dreamweaver), but any of the good graphics packages (PaintShop Pro, PhotoShop, PhotoSuite. etc) will perform just as well.


PaintShop Pro provides a simple 'buttonize' effect if you don't want to spend too long on the graphics.


Cover Size: 194 x 175 pixels

Button Size: 191 x 44 pixels

Note: These dimensions are not set in stone!

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
