I'm stuck! I finally got up and running with the gradient
tool and now I'm having trouble. Here is what I'm wanting to do and
I start a new image and set the bg to the color I want
(#330033 which is plum)
I select the gradient tool, which is to the left of the
eyedropper on the Colors pane.
Then the paint bucket modification icon defaults to 'black
and white' and no matter where I click the thing I can't get the
color selector to come up. Any idea how I can solve this dilemma
and get back to the color selector?
