Creating Dividers to Use on Your Hubs

Updated on November 7, 2012

Attribute the Dividers:

I have been informed that all dividers should have attribution. I even have to attribute the dividers I create in my own hubs. As you will see I have indicated the source under each divider. But to make this process easy, if you use dividers from this page, I recommend that you a create a box similar to this one somewhere in your hub that states, "All dividers used in this hub are used with permission granted on hub, Creating Dividers to Use on Your Hubs." In fact you can just cut and paste this statement from this document. Make sure that the hub title is hyperlinked to this hub and you are covered.


So many of you have asked how to create dividers to use on your hubs. I have included below more than 30 dividers I have created for your use. I will explain how to download them to your computer for your use.

The software that I have available for my use is either free or I have had for more than 10 years, so my dividers will not be terribly elaborate until I get better at creating them. In MissOlive's hub, Bling My Hub!, she indicates that you can also use Power Point to create them, but I do not currently have Power Point. Check her hub out for that information.


Using the Dividers Provided with this Hub

Once you have the following dividers loaded onto your computer, all you have to do is insert a picture capsule and upload the divider into your hub. So let's look at what it takes to get one of these onto your computer.

Let's look at saving the "Blue Faded to Black Divider" to your computer. Place your mouse over the image of the divider, then right click.


Blue Faded to Black Divider
Blue Faded to Black Divider | Source
Right Click on the Divider you want to save onto your computer.
Right Click on the Divider you want to save onto your computer.

Right clicking on the divider, and choosing the option "Save Image As ... " will give you a window similar to the one shown above. Type in a file name such as blue-black-divider. Then save the divider. (I have created a file folder and keep all my dividers in this one easy to find location.)

It is really that simple. You now have your first divider to use on your hubs.

Repeat this process with one of the dividers below or all of them, the choice is entirely yours.

To use, insert a photo capsule into your hub, and upload the divider from your file folder on your computer.

Happy Hubbing!

Additional Information

The above instructions are for PC users.

Melovy has so graciously added the process for Mac users: "For Macs you can still right click (people have to go to preferences and right-click enable their mouse first). And you can save it straight to iPhoto which then makes it very easy to upload to HP."

If you have any questions at all, please feel free to ask them and I will address them as best as I can. Happy Hubbing!


Check Back Often

I intend to continue to add dividers especially special ones for holidays so check back often.

      I can't believe that you have just done this. Only today I was reading a hub with great dividers and I told myself that I must find out how to do this. Here you are just in the nick of time. Thanks for sharing this.

      Gorgeous!!!! I love these! I worry that my layouts are becoming about as boring as last year's wardrobe (which generally dates back more than last year, but that's off topic). Thanks for sharing these - I will use them wisely and with gratitude!

      Voted up, awesome and useful!

    • Rusticliving profile image

      Elizabeth Rayen 5 years ago from California

      Amazing tutorial hub! I've used a few dividers and they just add a little more pizzaz to the look of the hub. Thank you for sharing your borders. You are so thoughtful and generous! Voted up and shared! :)

      Yvonne Spence 5 years ago from UK

      Wow this is so generous of you Homesteadbound. For Macs you can still right click (people have to go to preferences and right-click enable their mouse first). And you can save it straight to iPhoto which then makes it very easy to upload to HP.

      Thanks so much for this hub.

      Excellent help for our hub friends. I believe you can alter some od your colors in photoshop as well. Niver got into mac, but my suggestion is to go to the sources on the net. Common sense will prevail for Mac users. Thanks Cindy!

      What a fantastic idea to share the dividers you've made and provide the simple directions for using them (sorry, no MAC here-PC for me, too!)

      I've created several very easily, using PowerPoint, and I'm thinking I'd like to share them with Hubbers, too. Now I'm thinking HP could set up a Divider Library. Oh well, one thought at a time!

      Super helpful, Cindy, a great thing to do for not just this community, but for anyone who wants to add a simple graphic element to help organize information for readers. Up, useful, interesting. ~Sherri

      poshcoffee - So many people have wanted to use these but did not know how to create them. I sat down and created 95% of these today just for people to use. I don't use them all the time, but when I want them, it is nice to have them. Now I have a nice collection to choose from.

      Deborah Brooks - I was hoping that you would find these useful. I think you were one of those that asked for them. My gift to you! I will continue to add them throughout the year for different holidays and such.

      Marcy - hope you are able to use them. I cannot imagine anything that you wrote would be boring.

      Rusticliving - I hope you find these useful. You have been creating some hubs with some real pizzaz lately, so I know you can do this for yourself as well.

      Melovy - I hope you enjoy the use of these. I know you had one of these, but sometimes a different color or style fits in better with what you want to do or a mood you want to create. Thanks for providing the Mac instructions. I will move it up into the text and credit you with the add.

      Thanks to all of you for stopping by and sharing your wonderful words.

      Excellent hub Homesteadbound, anyway we can make our hubs stand out are much appreciated. Have seen these used to good effect over the challenge and wondered how they were acheived, now I know, thankyou. Voted up :)

      Cindy Murdoch 5 years ago from Texas

      lord de cross - I do not have photoshop either. I have a $9 software I bought in 2002 that I have been using to make these. Then I move them to another software to save in the proper format for HubPages.

      randomcreative - too bad they have removed the bookmarks. I hope you are able to find this when you want it.

      Sally's Trove - I made these dividers just for y'all. I have only used one of these. I made the rest of them today. A divider library is something that I mentioned in a hub where I talked about changes I would like to see on HP.

      Phil Plasma - I hope you find that they add to your hubs.

      cherylone - I hope you enjoy your experiments. I will be adding more of these as time goes on, so be sure to check back.

      vicki goodwin - I hope you do find them to be useful.

      BRIAN SLATER - they can dress up a hub. That is for sure. Hope you enjoy them.

      Thanks to all of you for stopping by and sharing your thoughts.

      RealHousewife - hope you like them. Be sure to check back. I hope to add more for upcoming holidays. I will be looking to add flowers for mother's day. I may even break down and do Easter, but that might have to be next year.

    • bankscottage profile image

      bankscottage 5 years ago from Pennsylvania

      Great Hub. I haven't been doing this very long but I like to break up my hubs and am always looking for different ways to do it. This is one more option.

      Also, for Macs to clarify a little. If you want to change preferences, it is system preferences. System preferences is found by clicking on the apple symbol in the upper left corner of your screen. A menu pops up and you can scroll down to system preferences and click on it. Then you would have to go to keyboard and mouse hardware option and click on that to change your preferences.

      All that said, I have a MacBook with a trackpad and no mouse. My trackpad only has one bar to click with (basic function would be the equivalent of left clicking with a PC). But, I can right click also. To right click with a single bar trackpad, hold down the "control" key while simultaneously clicking on the trackpad bar. A menu pops up and you can click on "Save Image As ..."

      When you click on this, a small screen pops up. The first line is where you fill in the name of the image (A name auto fills but you can change it). Be sure to leave the title of the image as "... .jpg" so that it gets identified as a picture. The next line asks "Where", where do you want the image saved? It is a pull down menu of options. I usually put it on the desktop so I know where it is and can refile it later. The third line asks the Format, in this case "JPEG Picture". Then click on the "Save" button and the image will be downloaded to your computer for future use.

      I wish I knew how to make images of my desktop, it would be easier to explain if you could see it.

      Thanks, homestead! I've been wanting these. I love dividers. If only I could bookmark this hub....Anybody know whre there's a bookmark on Google Chrome? I don't see one....I'll remember these, though!

    • TIMETRAVELER2 profile image

      TIMETRAVELER2 5 years ago

      I'm fairly new and haven't seen this done on any of the hubs I've read, so I'm not quite sure about the purpose of the dividers. Can you explain further? Thanks.

    • Happyboomernurse profile image

      Gail Sobotkin 5 years ago from South Carolina

      Wow! This is so awesome and I thank you so much for sharing this information and also the dividers. I've been wondering how this was done.

      Voted up across the board except for funny.

    • bankscottage profile image

      bankscottage 5 years ago from Pennsylvania

      It is too bad that they removed the bookmarks option with the new HP. But, you can still creat a "hubPages" bookmark file in your brower's bookmarks (I use Foxfire and can do it there, I am not sure about IE). You can file all of your favorite hubs in there.

    • DzyMsLizzy profile image

      Liz Elias 5 years ago from Oakley, CA

      What a great idea! I have noticed some of these, but never gave it much thought. Thank you for sharing these ideas.

      The instructions are pretty easy, and I think I could easily create them in Print Shop, which has both clip art and an "export" feature, allowing projects to be saved in jpeg format.

      The question is, "Why didn't I think of this before?" ;-)

      Voted up, interesting, useful and shared.

      Bill Holland 5 years ago from Olympia, WA

      bankscottage - Thanks for sharing your expertise with the Mac and with the MacBook. The instructions you have provided seem fairly clear to me and I have never been on a Mac. Thanks

      PurvisBobbi44 - I hope these work for you, and my instructions are clear. If not, please let me know so I can fix them. Like I said, I feel like I have left something out!

      Victoria Lynn - I can't understand why they have removed the bookmarks. I need to go through mine and save them. You could create a text file and cut and paste the URLs into it to save your hubs that you want. Just an idea. I hope you enjoy using these.

      TIMETRAVELER2 - Here are a few hubs where I know they have been used - a picture is worth a thousand words.

      Excellent divider information, hbn, thank you for your time and effort - and skill - in sharing it. I like to use dividers when I write funny puns - see 'Funny Pun' (numbers 1 through 12) and short 'Haikus'. Readers may easily copy and download more dividers from those sites if desired.

      A really easy way to make a divider is to go to flikr and do an advanced search for abstract art. If you make sure it is the Creative Commons section, you can crop the picture down to a suitable size, and insert it into your article.

      Terrific ideas! My sister and I create our own dividers using the background of pictures. It also helps to create walls for saying for our hubs.

      Thanks so much for this tutorial! The comments this is generating are helpful too--a sure sign of a great hub.

      Just learning this much has caused some other thingys to click together for me. Puzzle pieces that have been floating around are coming together due to tutorials like this. So nice! I'm going to give this a shot on one of my old hubs now just to see how it works for me. I'm one who'll have to be careful not to overdo this delightful decoration feature. :)

      Such a very kind and thoughtful (and time-consuming) gesture on your part. We will all benefit from this and think of you every time we write a hub.

      thoughtforce - It does not make sense for everyone to spend the time to make these. I was able to create all of these in a few hours by approaching it systematically. Enjoy them.

      Ardie - I look forward to your hub and seeing how they work for you.

      alocsin - I hope you do enjoy experimenting with them. I don't use them on every hub myself, but sometimes they are useful.

      tlpoague - enjoy them. Using photos is a great idea. Sorry it has taken me so long to approve my comments. I appreciate you returning and noticing.

      vespawoolf - So glad you were able to put them to use immediately.

      Pamela99 - feel free to enjoy these as well as your own.

      RTalloni - I am glad to know that you were able to use the divider. I will be adding other over time. I think it is important to have a variety to use because we all have different personalities.

      Thanks to all of your for stopping by and commenting. I hope you all enjoy the use of these. Thanks!

      I'm usually a little behind on these things...in reading more about using the dividers GA Anderson mentions credit requirements and I don't see that in your hub. Thought you might like to consider adding it, unless I missed it. I'll add a credit to you in the hubs I use yours in--think I'll put a link to this hub, actually.

      I began to notice these dividers and wondered where they originated.

      They do made a great addition to hubs and break up the text nicely.

      Bookmarking this so I can maybe use some in the future.

      Nice work Cindy.

      Voted up 4.5 buttons and sharing these great ideas.

      molometer - Although the idea of using dividers did not originate with me, I quickly embraced them. I do not use them on every hub, I but do like to have them available when I want to use them.

      Robert Erich - hope your enjoy using them

      Kristine Manley - so glad I could help.

      missolive - without your bling, very few people would be using borders. But since you opened the door, I thought I would make them available to everyone. Great job, Missolive!

      mary615 - So glad to make these available to you. Dividers can be fun!

      homesteadbound;

      this must be one of the most useful, yet simplest to use, pages of advice on HubPages. I am a great believer in making hubpages look as attractive (and therefore as professional) as possible, and to this end I have been using dividers in all my hubs for a long time. However, not being blessed with great knowledge of how to use paint / power point / graphics programmes, my dividers have been simple monocoloured bars. Whilst I am happy to share my method of creating dividers, yours are so much better and open up a much greater range of possibilities.

      Thank you for sharing them and making them available to others to use. I trust your generosity in sharing these will be repaid in some way.

      This divider-idea is so simple and easy that I wonder why no one thought of this before. Great idea. Thanks for sharing. (One word of caution: each extra image/photo slows down the page speed which in turn affects search-engine ranking and user experience.)
