When you need a gradient, where do you go? What do you do?
Well, most people rip open their trusty graphics package. Myself, I would probably go with GIMP. But what if you just need a gradient quick? Then GradientStudio could be it. The key to all your troubles.
This application allows you to create gradients and export them as a bitmap or jpeg, and allows you to export the color codes along with html tables. On top of that, you can add gradients directly to images which makes it the supa-gradient-extraordinaire. Freeware for Windows.
