Creating Dividers to Use on Your Hubs
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.
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.

I will occasionally add miscellaneous dividers as I create them.
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.
