The user has total control of shape, size, lighting, bevels and many other design elements. Textures, bitmap images or a gradient can also be used in button creation. This is an EXCELLENT program and I recommend it for anyone. It also comes with a program called Tilez which makes seamless textures. Has a Smart JPG save which allows you to adjust the quality (lower quality= higher compression) and preview the compressed JPG image before saving it. [Report a dead link]

Font Magic , 1,800kb
Make your own banners and headers with this 3d font program.

Review: right away I can see this has lots of features like making animated BMPs or static BMPs. It will create a bitmap using any font on your system including graphic fonts like dingbats. Surfaces can also have textures (many are supplied).

Pros: any font changes are immediately visible in the preview window. Has gradients for background. Has controls for shine, ambient, diffuse, specular. Has an automatic setting to rotate the text around any axis, but creates multiple BMPs to do it. You then need to combine them yourself to get an animated GIF.

Cons: FM requires OpenGL to be installed. Help file buttons did not work. When I changed a font the program did not recenter my text, although I could drag it with my mouse in the preview window. Saves image as BMP not GIF. Animated images are multiple BMPs. [Report a dead link]

Kaos Rhei , 500kb
Kaos Rhei is a program for rendering fractal images which can be used in as stand-alone images, textures or bump maps for 3D rendering. It currently supports more than a dozen different fractal types, including M-Sets, N-Sets and N/M-Sets. A unique formula parser gives you full control over the coloring of the fractals, either using a preset 256-color palette, or applying different formulas to RGB or HLS color space. Image size is only limited by the available memory. Additional features include integration of plasma clouds, several filters, and various fractal options such as inverted fractals.

Minimun requirements are 8 MB RAM, a Pentium processor (or a comparable with FPU), and High Color or True Color display. [Report a dead link]
