With the Adesign program, you can create gradient backgrounds. You can choose the color you want to use, and the gradient style you want to use. In this guide, I will walk you through the steps of creating gradient backgrounds in Adesign. Load your Adesign program and we will get started.
Create a New Document to Work On
You will now need to create a new document to work on. Go to the top of Adesign and select the File > New option. When the box opens, change the width and height to what you want. Then click the Custom option for the background color. Click the Background color box and select the color you want for your background. This will be part of your gradient background. For example, if you wanted a blue and gray gradient, you will need to set the background to blue or gray, and set the gradient to the opposite color. When you are finished with setting up your new document’s properties, you can click the OK button on the box and your document will open.
Selecting the Gradient Tool in Adesign
In your left toolbar, you will need to look for your paint bucket tool. If you do not see a paint bucket tool, look for the gradient square. Select this tool and you will see a menu open. In the menu, you will see your choices for gradient tool. Select the gradient tool that you want to use for your background by clicking it.
Changing Your Gradient Properties in Adesign
Now you can change the properties for the gradient tool. On the right side of your program, you will need to select the color you want to go along with your background for the gradient. In the top part of the panel, click the color of your choice.
Applying the Gradient to Your Background in Adesign
Now you will need to use your mouse to apply the gradient. You are going to have to play around with this step to get the gradient the way you want it. It will take some practice, so don’t get discouraged. Use your mouse and click somewhere on the document and drag your mouse a little ways. When you let go of your mouse, you will see the gradient. The longer the line, the bigger the gradient. You can place the line in corners, on the sides, or in the middle. To undo the gradient and try again, press CTRL Z on your keyboard. You can practice this way. Draw a line, press CTRL Z to undo it. Continue doing this until you have the gradient background you want.
