Creating graphics for web pages started with a desire to assist my new husband with his website. I then discovered that I really enjoyed creating buttons and finding backgrounds. But I wanted to do more than copy graphics. I started making my own graphics and I will continue to expand my knowledge in the graphics field as time allows. I have used the following software programs in creating web sites. I find them easy to learn and use. Their costs are in the low to moderate range.
