Promotional images





-TomJ-
Off late I see a lot of little boxed images, to promote a web service, of a favourite browser.
I mean things like or .

Who can tell me more about them:

  • are there conventions for them?
  • are they created by the organisation they promote?
  • are they free to use?
  • what are the underlying hyperlinks?

I would like to use them too, but I don't know where to start.

The rules are differnt for different organisations. The best thing to do is to visit the homepage of the orgnisation and download images form there and follow the conventions mention on the site.

But for our "own" Frihost, there is no thingie to be found?
Is there a name for them? It is not an avatar, as people use in web forums, nor an icon ...

But if you don't have Photoshop? Or don't want to have Photoshop because it has a zillion tools, features, choices, possibilities, options, utilities, so it takes a century and a half to learn? I use PaintShopPron to edit my graphics, and even there I stick to vs 7 because the later ones give me more confusing options...

OK, I have found something that suits my needs: here is a
Button Maker that will create one according to your online specifications.
