Blog Train Button

I wanted to put a button on my blog for Blog Train, but wasn't very keen on the proper one.
After a bit of fiddling in Paint, using a free to use clipart image - I've got one of my own, that looks a whole lot more in keeping.


The size of the image is 250 pixels square to fit the template of my blog.  If anyone else would like to use it, please feel free to copy and paste.

If you need to resize, open Paint, paste image and resize using pixel option.  If you are unsure how wide it needs to be, right click on an image the right size on your blog, and check out the properties - where you will see the pixel dimensions.

If you want to recolour - use the fill option in the colour of your choice.  The green and yellow bits showing through are from the original colouring, as it would be nigh on impossible to get rid of them.

To add to blog, choose the add a photo option, and include your personal link code.  Voila - anyone clicking on the image will go straight to the Blog Train site.

    1. Thank you Kaye - I know it's simple - but there was a very poor selection of train art that appealed to me :)
