What is gradient as it relates to graphic design software?


Wiki User

A gradient is a smooth transition of a color to another color on a surface. A gradient can also be a transition of the same color but to a different hue (see the upper green tab of this site - it is green but has a smooth almost unnoticeable transition to a different hue. The same is with the GO button, but there is another reflection effect applied to it as well) All graphic design softwares have the tool to make gradients.
