Alright, i'm hoping this is a fairly easy question to answer.
I use fireworks at my school and I'm designin a site with it. I
want to know how in fireworks I can make it so the color fades from
dark blue (indigoish color) to a lighter blue. The fade has to be
vertical (dark on top fading to lighter blue on bottom). How do I
do this in fireworks? I saw something with a gradient paint bucket
but I can only make the gradient one do it horizontally. Thanks for
When you apply a gradient to an object, the default
orientation is horizontal. Select the object and you'll see a line
with a square at one end and a circle at the other. Move the square
relative to the circle to set the direction of the gradient. Move
the distance between the two points to set how much of your object
has the gradient. If the points are outside the object, then less
than your full gradient is applied. If the points are fully within
the object, then only part of your object has the gradient, areas
beyond the points are the solid color of the gradient ends.
Er...just play with it and you'll see.
