New Gradient


Posts: 1

I'm pretty new to Pixelmator and am having a good time finding out what it can do.

Now, I have a question. Is it possible to create a new gradient/gradient map? I see how gradients can be removed and imported, but I can't seem to get the app to cooperate when I try to create a gradient of my own. I've tried to "edit" an existing gradient, but the colors don't stay in place or the effect disappears when I remove my cursor.

Can anyone help me?

Thank you.

Not sure what you are trying to do exactly. Are you creating a new gradient in the gradients palette? Or are you trying to apply a gradient to your document?

In the mean time you might want to take a look at the following free tutorial that explains gradients: Getting started with Pixelmator – Part 5 – How to Use Brushes and Gradients
