How to create a gradient.
To create an image gradient click the 'Pick' button for both the 'Start Colour' and the 'End Colour' then select the 'Gradient Direction', alter the size of the image if you need to and click 'Draw Gradient'
Your new gradient can be saved to an image file or copied to the clipboard so that it can be pasted into an image / photo editor of your choice. You can also rotate the gradient image if you need to.
If you want to make a gradient from a colour to a lighter or dark version of that colour you can use the 'Define Custom Colors' button on the pick colour dialog (shown below) and select a lighter or dark version of your first colour on the sliding scale on the right hand side.
