February 15th, 2013LWBM: Problem putting an image on a button
Knowledge Base support case for Likno Web Button Maker, abstracted and stripped of all user’s private info.
Initial Email From: Bob
Initial Email Subject: Difficulty placing small image on surface of my Likno Web Button
Support Case Month: December 2012
I'm a registered Likno Web Button Maker owner (version 2.0.162).
The screenshot illustrating my problem is attached, so you can see what is occurring. Also attached is the little image I wanted to use for the button background.
I've worked for hours just trying to set a small image as the background of my Likno Web Button. I used PNG files, because I saw no restriction specified against using PNGs.
I started with the basic square chamfer button template. For the purpose of showing this problem, I made the button size much bigger than any image I would apply as the 'background' during this test. The latest image I selected was only 184x82, and my button size is set really large at 544x314. I used the larger button size just to make my screen shot clearer for you. I selected 'Stretch', so you could see my image hiding behind my button.
When I produce my button, it's simply blank, white -- my image isn't there.
Believe me, I read, then re-read the Help file and followed the instructions about putting an image on a button. Following the instructions didn't yield a 'picture button', which is what I wanted.
Can you help?

I assume that what you are seeing is the actual button…
The background image is something that will appear behind the actual button and not on it. If you want something to appear on the button but behind the text, then I guess that you want to change the “Texture” in the “Button Material” tab:
Note however that this will always be stretched, so you should make sure your image has the correct size (and maybe the correct transparent padding around it if you want a small image to be centered into a larger button).
