How Do You Use Photoshop to Create A Clickable Badge or Button for Your Blog?

I've downloaded photoshop Elements 6.0 However, I can't for the life of me figure out how to use it! How do I design a button in photo shop and then make it clickable?

You need to make the image first and then add it and the code to your blog - it's sort of two separate things. Photoshop won't help you with the code (unless you have some super duper version I'm unaware of).
if you want to email me at heddy.e@gmail.com I'll send you a file with the code you'll need. If I post it here it will come out all weird :)
Maternal Spark -- I was just about to ask the same question; I know how to make the button but don't know enough about CSS/HTML to generate the code. Can I email you as well for it?
I just wrote how to create a simple banner....might help get you started. It's not with elements but it still might help.

Lori,

Thank you so much. I downloaded paint.net and I'm playing around with it.
You bet...it's much easier to work with than gimp, etc. It also has layers and stuff for those who want to get really creative. I have Adobe CS3 but I use my paint all the time. Gimp is great but it's such a memory hog.

Maternal Spark - I have a friend who wants to place an ad on my blog and I was wondering how I was going to make it clickable to her site.

When she's got her ad ready, can I email you for some coding instructions?

Lori, how would you make a clickable banner with flashing photos from my photobucket album? ;o)
Don't kill me (wink wink).

Thanks for the advice, Lori! I've been killing myself doing it on photobucket and it's making me crazy!
