Creating and Editing Gradients

You will see three bars on the editing menu:
  • Gradient bar: to set the colors and where they blend together.
  • Transparency bar: to set the opacity of the gradient.
  • Results bar: will show you what the gradient will look like.

Each bar has a thumb or pointer under the bar, and a diamond mid-point above the bar. You can reposition these points by sliding them up and down the bar, to adjust either the gradient or transparency.

There will always be one mid-point between every pair of thumbs. The mid-point sets the point where the colors or transparency will blend. Each thumb will set a specific color or opacity value.
