Editing Button's color and round border
I have created 5 different colour of button in simple buttons and 4 different colours in game type buttons. 
Red , green , blue , cyan , purple in simple.
You can choose and use any one of them . In order to change color go to <button class="pirate-button blue" replace this blue by red or cyan or green or purple And you will get your required colour .

And to get round border or say curved button add round at last of color inside class.

Similarly in game buttons there are 4 different colors and you can similarly add color names inside class=" game-button orange" This orange can be replaced by red or orange or green.
And if you didn't used any of these word then by default it will be blue. I have added blue as default so if no colour is mentioned it will appear blue.


Conclusion


Having a download button makes everything very professional and make it easier for your visitor to download given files. There are many ways you can create button first is native css buttons which is very simple , fast and occupy less storage .
Other methods are prebuilt images which can be used but professionals don't recommend them why ? Because it takes alot of storage and increases your loading time . CSS button are few KB where as images are more than 200KB .

So in my opinion always use css buttons in blog as its professional plus takes less storage. Yeah they are not fancy but you know its about work not about fashion and looks but again game button looks attractive right.
