How do you create a gradent

Ok, the help menu does not address this at least as far as I can find. After you use the "color mixer" by picking out the start and end color, there is no reference as to what you do next to create the gradent. I have explored every menu with the only reference being the color mixer. I would think it probably goes into a php file, but I really have no idea. I also noticed the users guide has a lot of redundancy and could proably be half as long as it is but should definitely include the above info.

Did you click on "add selected color to scheme" after you select your two colors for the gradient?
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

Here's my S-Drive site with
examples of what can be accomplished in VSD.

I think the function of the colour mixer is to show you a range of colours which gradually pass between your two chosen colours for the gradients. I don't believe it will actually produce a gradient. You will have access to all the hex codes for each of the colours in the gradient scale, but not one single block showing the gradients. I have the application myself and am confident that this is the case.

Yeah Eric I did do that, but according to Janys, I believe I was expecting to much from the program. Thank you both and oh well !. Either of you, or anyone, know a good "relatively inexpensive" gradient (gradent) builder.

Most image editors will let you create gradients to fill specific areas of an image in just the same way you would fill with a block colour. The colour schemer is not an image editor... maybe you have Adobe Photoshop Elements... or Gimp. Maybe others can suggest other editors that you can do this with. You can do this in the CC Web Image Studio with certain kinds of image files...or create your own shapes and fill those with a gradient. Try out the free trial period to see if that might be what you need.
