Description:

Open GIMP and create a new image (CTRL+N), mine is 420×200. Create a new layer (Layer > New Layer) called “color” with a fill type of transparency.

Make a selection for the button with the rectangular select tool (R), my selection is 198×43, then go Select > Rounded Rectangle and set it to 90%. Change the foreground color to #0039B3 and the background color to #9ADEFA, then select the gradient tool (L) and click and drag (while holding CTRL to keep the gradient straight along the vertical axis) from top to bottom of the selection.    More detail...
