"*Include about 10 pixels of padding between your image edges and the 
button edges.* Even though the edges of an image button aren’t visible, 
they still define the clickable area for the button. Padding ensures 
that a user’s click registers even when it misses the image slightly.

*Allow adequate spacing between image buttons and other controls.* 
Provide enough of a buffer that the user won’t inadvertently click the 
button’s hidden frame when attempting to click another control."
