Easy Web Buttons can save templates and graphic images for web use. Here are the differences:
Templates are the files that Easy Web Buttons uses to create the graphical image that you will use in your application or web site. These templates allow you to edit your layout at a later time, when you want to make changes to it. These template files are saved with an extension of .3DB, short for 3D Button. These files are the data files and are read/written only by this program. To load/save your templates you will use the Open/Save/Save As... menu items.
Under the Options menu you will see a Save PSD when saving template entry. Check this to have the layers of your button saved as a PhotoShop .PSD file so that they can be opened in PhotoShop if desired. The objects are not editable as they are in Easy Web Buttons but you will have 4 layers with each image as it appears in your button available to work with.
Graphic images are what you add to your web pages. These would be GIF, JPG, BMP or PNG files. These are flat files as they say and are not editable by Easy Web Buttons. You can load them into a paint program such as PhotoShop or Paint Shop Pro but the layers will not be present. To save a graphic version of your button to your hard drive you will need to use the Export/Export All... menu options. Once exported you can then use these images in your HTML editor to place them on your web site.
When you export your button if there are multiple captions it will ask you if you want them all generated. If you choose yes it will save a button for each caption in your list. In the event that you do use multiple captions it will use the filename you used as a prefix for each button created using the caption in the filename as well. Using the following caption list:
And say you entered "blue.png" as the filename, your image files would be named:
This way you can differentiate between various sets that you create from the same caption list.
