As you would expect I have a gradient with several colors. Is there a way to change the colors? I now I can change the colors in Illustrator CS5. The colors are now shades of green. I want blue. I want to restrict the colors between a dark and light blue. I know logically a computer can do this but not sure about Illustrator.
I watched the Video. It was not very information when you consider the Help offered by Adobe on the Gradient Tool. But the issue is not the Gradient tool necessarily.
I'm trying to replace the actual colors on a button that is a gradient. Maybe I should have said "Replace or Substitute” colors. Not create a gradient.
But thanks for ther help.
This should help you change the colors on an existing gradient.
There are many kinds of (what you perceive as) green, and of blue.
Ifyou are thinking of different tints/shades of certain (RGB) colours, such as pure RGB green as in RGB = 0, 0 - 255, 0 and pure RGB blue as in RGB = 0, 0, 0 - 255, you may swith to the HSB Color window and then click each stop in the gradient and change the H value from 120 to 240; in the more general case you may switch by the difference in H value for the green and blue in question.
Normally, it is more complicated to change, the colours normally being combinations, and the transitions often having to be adapted to the actual colours used.
In general, an automated change of colours may create strange/ugly transitions.
