Make Gradient Backgrounds

Ah gradients, they beat the pants off flat colours any day of the week. Do you spell it colors or colours? I’m Canadian so I say the “u” when I speak it.

There are many ways to make gradients but this is by far the best way. It’s way better than that silly way you were making them before, believe me… I know.

These are great for adding a nice subtle and classy background to things and after you get used to the technique you can crank them out in no time at all! Or take your time and do a good job, that’s an option too but it’s not for everyone.

    nice and quick tips – thx man! But I think sometimes using 32bit to avoid banding is not worth the increased rendertimes. Sometimes I use the add noise effect to get these gradients more natural although using only 16 bit…
