Image Icon
Replaces the icon with your own image icon. Use the Choose Media button to choose an image from your WordPress media library or click the Image Search button to search for royalty-free images on Pixabay.

Align the entire button on the page. Defaults to center. Choose between the following options: Left, Right, Center or Justify.

Set the button corner rounding. Defaults to Slightly rounded. Choose between None, Slightly rounded, Very rounded or Completely rounded.
