The gradient tool part 2

This is a continuation from the gradient tool part 1. There are three types of gradients you can choose from which are: foreground to background, foreground to transparent, and customs. Below I will discuss and show examples of the types of gradients.

Foreground to background

This gradient type uses the current foreground and background colours for the gradient. So, the example below has a red foreground and a blue background.

Foreground to transparent

This gradient type blends the foreground colour with transparent pixels. In the example below I have used an image to show the transparent gradient. As you can see from the image only the top section has colour while the bottom section is transparent.


This gradient type is any colour you specify from gradient editor. You can also use transparency in the custom gradients.
