You must use a wired broadband connection for Build-a-Button to work properly. It is possible to use a wireless connection on some computers but we do not guarantee this option. We recommend that you use Firefox as your browser. Download the latest version here. Simple issues can be resolved by reloading the page. If you are still having trouble, delete and reinstall your browser with the latest version. Yes, believe it or not, it works!
I am receiving a Runtime Error.
Runtime errors are caused by not having the latest version of Flash installed. To ensure normal performance and to maximize your experience with the Build-a-Button 1.0 Online Design Center, install the latest version of Flash. (Make sure you have at least Flash 10 installed.)

Can Build-a-Button 1.0 edit photos such as changing brightness, cropping and erasing?Build-a-Button 5.0 is more powerful and offers many more editing features than our original 1.0 version. In BAB 1.0, we included an opacity tool to reduce the brightness of your original image. However you would want to use a dedicated photo editing program for cropping and erasing etc. Below is a list of some of the best free photo editing programs.
- www.splashup.com (Includes an eraser function to erase unwanted elements in your photo)
- www.photoshop.com (online photo editing program)
Can I print different designs on one page?
No, however you can select how many images you want to print on a single page. If you want to print multiple images on a single page you can cut and paste your completed designs into a photo editing program.
How can I print images on 4x6 photo paper?
Simply cut and paste your finished image into one of the photo editors listed above. Then crop your image and print it out.
