In addition to solid fills, patterns, and weaves , you can fill objects with different types of colored fills called gradients . Basically, a gradient fill is simply a fill that consists of more than one color .
In Painter, you can alter the pattern and shape of gradient fills using the Gradients palette.
Typically, a gradient fill should be applied to a selection. There are a variety of preset gradient fills in Painter, but as usual, you can customize your own gradients in a multitude of ways.
The exact position of your mouse is important when you apply a gradient fill because it represents the center of the fill.
Not only can you fill objects with gradients, you can also directly paint gradients onto your canvas. To paint with a gradient you must access the Brush Creator.
You can customize a gradient fill by changing its shape, angle, and direction. The Gradients palette provides a central location for creating your own gradients.
Painter allows you to change the color scheme of any gradient easily.
Painter allows you to take the colors from a gradient and apply them to an existing image. This is particularly useful if you want to add color to a fractal pattern you have created. It's also the fastest way to change the color scheme of a weave or pattern.
You can save edited gradients so you can apply them again in the future.
