Is it possible to release a Photoshop PSD (or whatever you’ve used) of the buttons used in Magento so that we can “translate” them into each native languague? A ZIP with the PSD included, located in the Download-section would be magnificento! :D

the majority of the ‘buttons’ are just text with css styling...i just find it odd why “place order” and “proceed to checkout” buttons are actual images when they could just be done with text/css as well (plain sans-serif text on top of your typical ‘web 2.0’ round corner/gradient background img)

I was wondering the same thing. As a designer, it should be easy to update the look of buttons with CSS by editing one (maybe two) images.

We understand the need for both CSS buttons and image buttons - so we will support both for different language per design package.

More details will follow when we finalize this.

Thanks

I want to add a onmousedown image to the search form submit button.  My problem is that I don’t know how to access the down image directly.  Magento uses php functions to get the images so I don’t know the url to the image in my custom theme.

Hello everyone smile

Thanks for your input - In response, I went ahead and created a Wiki post here: http://www.magentocommerce.com/wiki/Creating-CSS-buttons-vs-Image-buttons/

The pages in the current default theme that contain image buttons are the “Place Order” and “Proceed to Checkout”. These buttons were created using images to demonstrate the flexibility of Magento in regards to adopting both image and css buttons. Some designers will prefer image buttons, others will the CSS ones. Hopefully the wiki post will answer your questions. Thank you-

I dont think what wiki-post is relevant to the v1.0 as it seems to me you’ve implemented this as a default feature in the production version.

However, maybe its relevant to people wanting to use plain image-buttons.

Just to re-iterate what aFFi requested, it would be great to have the stock images available high-res.  Just starting our design, so the ones specificially that we’ve come across so far are:

btn_mini_search.gif
mini_search_bg.gif

We can re-create them, but if you’ve got them somewhere, it would sure save time.

thanks.

That wikipost is outdated. Is there any other solution to change the image buttons into css buttons? Or maybe release a PSD file so we can translate the buttons into diffferent languages?
