Hey GS Community,

I was wondering what programs or artwork you are using to create your own menus (UI) for your games. For example: a button pack. I am having trouble creating one of my own. Any help is much appreciated!

    I use Affinity Photo (not free), but gimp is a good and free tool.

    Google 'Gimp button tutorial' and you'll find step by step instructions to make your own buttons.

    Remember, that like all software, it might take some time to learn the basics, but it's worth it.

    EDIT: Inkscape is good too, and there's lots of tutorials for that.

    I use photoshop and if you have an older computer ( :p read the system requirements )
    you can download photoshop CS2 free off of Adobe's site, so it's legit.

    Download it here:

    If you don't know how to make your own images, gameartpartners.com have great images for games for fairly cheap prices. Oh, and you get 10% off your order for sharing on social media ;) ;p
