Which image editor are you using?
I use Paint.NET and its just
Image Menu -> Resize -> Give the Height and Width and OK.

For the Start Orb, each image state must be a 54x54 image.
So it will be 54x162 for all three (one below the other).

Uh.... Gladson1976, if I may comment on something without stepping on any toes; the alpha layer on the orbs you attached here doesn't really line up with the button (a bit blurred where the shadow was).

Thought I'd help fix that slightly, didn't change the images at all, just the alpha layer... Hope you don't mind...?

Or will selecting an image of this size with the Win 7 Start Button Changer automatically pick up the button width? I must admit I didn't try it, I was afraid I'd break something if I did... Lol.

Nice, I can tell you used StartOrbz to make it.

BTW, the next build (later today) will let you export 4 valid bmp's (properly resized) so you can use them in any program you wish.
