In the past days, we have received many messages from new users asking for more tutorials about the basics of our graphic design software.
So, today we decided to show you how easy is to use gradients in Vectornator.
What is a Gradient?
Gradients are a range of mixed colors (two or more) to make certain elements visually more exciting and striking. Through them, we can give visual emphasis and beautify an interface in a modern and subtle way. A way to add depth and dimension to your design.
The gradient choices available to you in Vectornator are the linear and the radial gradient but working with both of them is quite similar.
Linear gradients are usually the most common, where two colors appear at opposite points of an object and will blend into each other.
After selecting your shape,tapto fill and the Color Palette will show up. Tap again to choose the type of gradient you want to apply.
Each of the gradient colors is represented by a circle in the Gradient Bar.
Any of those circles you can:
- tap on to set the color via the Color Picker. Updating one of these color circle will immediately update the gradient live.
- drag to move and change the gradient smoothness
- tap to add a new color to your gradient
- hold and drop down to remove a color
Also, updating one of these color circle will immediately update the gradient of your shape.
