Hi. I am trying to make buttons on PS. I am very new to this. I am taking a class in DW and didn't know that PS was going to be used so I didn't learn it (so now I am trying to learn 2 software programs at same time).
This is my dilemma:
I am trying to make buttons for a site redesign project for class. I figured out how to make the layer, put the name (eg. Home, About Us, etc) and do drop shadows, bevel etc. The problem is when I do that it only makes these changes over the text. I cannot figure out how to make a box around the text, and make that box a button. It is frustrating. I have tried so many different things.
I would appreciate any and all help. thanks.

Well, you can't code the button but, you can design it. All you have to do is save it as a png, and it will adapt to what ever background color it is placed on.

There are hundreds of tutorials availlable.
Try a simple search: "making a button in photoshop"

What you need to understand is that DW is for webpage coding, PS is for graphics and Photo manipulation.
The main issue here is that if you're going to build a webpage you'll need both. One for the coding part and the other for the design and graphic pieces production.
