I by no means profess to really know what I’m doing but I’ve learned to make a button on wordpress through trial and error and asking a few more tech savy friends.
Will this work on your blog or website – maybe. 🙂 But if you don’t use WordPress, possibly not.
One of the choices on my WordPress Dashbar is to “add new media”. Add the image to your media (where photos, videos, etc. get stored). Once it’s added it will show you the path for where it is saved — something similar to the second underlined text in the pasted info below except it will refer to your blog where it is saved.
Next I go to Widgets on the Dashboard and create a new Text widget. Click on Text in the widget list and drag a new one over to your sidebar (course you must be using a blog format that includes using widgets). Put it in your sidebar where ever you want it to appear. Click on the litle arrow to open a blank box to create the widget. Paste this text into the Widget creation space.

The second underlined text portion that ends with .jpg you should delete and paste in the path to where you saved the photo on your blog. Make sure you do not delete the quotation marks at each end. Save the widget and close it and it “should” appear.
I have not frittered away the whole day – I’ve spent most of the afternoon knitting since there was not a good pair of socks to finish off for a friend of mine for Christmas. Most were started for me so would be too big and the smaller ones I’ve already promised to my sister. So I pulled out some yarn and got started on the gift pair.
