Create Dividers or Linebars

Create simple dividers using rectangles and ovals and colors plus a paint program or a graphics program.

http://webclipart.about.com/library/weekly/aa012298.htm

Dividers can be used to call divide and separate content on your Web pages.

What you need to know before creating dividers.

You will need a paint program or graphics program that will allow you to draw rectangles and circles and to fill the rectangles and ovals with a color. If you want to add a drop shadow or turn the bullet background transparent you will also need a graphics program that has the option to add a shadow and to transparent backgrounds, as well as the knowledge on how to use these options.

1. Choose the rectangle tool and draw a long skinny rectangle.

2. Choose red and fill the rectangle with the red color.

3. Add a drop shadow to your bullet. You will need the option to "select" the bullet you just highlighted. After you select it, choose black for your shadow color, and use the drop shadow option to add the shadow.

Copy and save this drop shadowed bullet as a new image.

Your created dividers may be used on any white Web page background or used on any desktop publishing project that uses white paper. If you had the option to transparent the divider background ,the one without the drop shadow, your transparent divider may be used on any colored Web page background.

Be creative and make more dividers in various sizes and colors. For example you could add your medium sized blue bullet to the end of your divider to create a new look.
