Edit Text on Photo

It makes no sense to include the text with the button image itself.

Make a generic background button using the link Minners gave you and use that for all of the buttons. The viewers browser can insert the text if you place it between the A tags.

<td><a href="index.html"><img src="images/index_03.gif" alt="" width="216" height="48" border="0"></a></td>

Becomes

<td><a href="index.html"><img src="images/GenericButton.gif" alt="" width="216" height="48" border="0">YOUR TEXT HERE</a></td>

Oh, and laying our your website with tables and multiple TR and TD tags is an awful way of doing it. Do yourself a favour and get yourself a CSS template boltbait.wink.png

I inserted text as described but could not duplicate the color, font or size. In paint.net when I open images/index_03.gif I'd like to be able to edit the text (Home) with the same color, size and font and then save as another gif

but selecting the "T" for text, I don't seem to see the font or size. And, when I place the cursor say after the H (in Home) I can't insert another letter. Hope this is clear and you can advise.

You can not edit the text as you describe.

Why? Well, because the image does not contain any text.

It only includes A PICTURE of text.

This is a huge distinction that you need to understand.

Do the same for all of the buttons. That way the browser will render all of the buttons' text and the text will all match.

As I said in my first reply, it makes no sense to include the text with the button image - this applies to all the buttons.

Use your generic button as the background for each of the buttons. Add or change the text to what you want to individualize each button.
