Applying Gradient Fills
Gradients are made up of two or more colors that gradually fade into each other. They
can be used to give depth to a shape or create realistic shadows. Apply a gradient fill to
a shape—now including lines—by using a gallery or presets for quick results, or by us-
ing the Format Shape pane ( New ! ) for custom results. A gradient is made up of several
gradient stops, which are used to create non-linear gradients. If you want to create a gradi-
ent that starts blue and goes to green, add two gradient stops, one for each color. Gradient
stops consist of a position, a color, brightness, and a transparency percentage.
