And now, my dear friends, I realize that in this chapter, I have laid a lot of jive down upon you. There have been a lot of little tidbits. But I want to give you just a little bit of a helpful hint. One of the things that you can do is actually start with an Encore menu, and then open it in Photoshop. And we can simply use this as a template. If you're new to the button codes, if they are intimidating, if the layout of the menu is intimidating, we could simply start here, and maybe we could change the background to one of our liking. Maybe we could change the button background to something of our liking.
Basically, just use this, again, as a template, as a frame of reference here. We may want to leave the button codes intact, for example, leave the highlights intact. If you're feeling a little bit more adventurous, of course, you could just open up a Blank menu and then edit the Blank menu in Photoshop. And at least you'll have the dimensions to start with. So either way, if it helps, you can start with one of the Encore menus, edit those and use that as the foundation for your own menu.
