    In Paintshop Pro how do you create the even flow that you see in gradents and could you do it with the suntan tool? What if I need to change the color of the example shown and all I have is the jpg file. Do I make a copy of the background and work from there? I know it's easy for you but mind bogging for me. When I try to change it all I get is stairsteps of color or the color comes out all wrong, as if the color underneath is adding to the new color. Is this a layer problem or am I geeting to old to figure it out?

    I'd make one up for you and send it only I don't know which version psp you're using or if the gradients are still saved under the .jgd extension type.
    But then again, you don't get to learn that way. :)

    (just looked it up and found extension is now .grd)

    You might find this site useful: look halfway down the page

    The sample you've posted is a simple #F7B79E to #FFFFFF gradient. When you've followed the tutorial your gradient editor should look like this:

    I am using version 10, just uninstalled and reinstalled the software, gradients now work fine. Sometimes my old brain just slows down.
    Thanks for your help.
