    Will any of the programs make a gradient background image to be used in templates. I have the following programs:

    WebGraphics Creator
    Logo Creator
    Flash Ad Creator

    Also, what is the best size this image should be saved as when using?

    Any suggestions or help?

    Thanks

    If I am understanding you correctly you want to make a custom gradient background. The way to that is to type the lower letter case "s" for a square shape background, upper case "R"for a rectangle background or lower case "c" for a circle shape and then choose the embedded font "Shapes". Make as large as possible then color as desired. Because at its largest you will not be able to cover the canvas you will need to EXPORT as a transparent .png.Import your gradient shape back in and now you should be able to enlarge it enough to cover your canvas .

    I see your image here

    I see what you are saying by the picture, but I dont get a square to show up in there like that. If I type the "S" for a square where is the square image coming from, it doesnt let me put any colors anywhere unless I click use this text which moves the S down there?

    Im missing something...

    Click DONE after shape appears and you will see your text attribute list for coloring and other effects.

    After you type the S, go to "Format" then where it says "impact" click that and scroll down to "Shapes" click that and your square will mysteriously appear... hope this helps.
