Are you a fan of gradients?

If yes, well, you're in the right place. :) Because we love gradient shapes.

In this FAQ, we will explore the different ways of using gradient shapes for your designs in Picmaker.

Step 1: Log in to your Picmaker account.

Step 2: Click on any template that you wish to use or on any design that you are creating. Click on 'Objects' on Picmaker's left-hand menubar and notice how it opens up into a plethora of design objects.


Step 3: Now, notice on the left-hand menubar, 'Gradient shape' at the top. Gradient shapes are different forms of regular and irregular shapes with a gradual blending from one color to another.

Why do you need gradients?

Well, let us ask ourselves why not? Gradients can make a world of difference to your designs because they look pleasing, trendy, and a welcome change from flat colors. If you think about it, flat colors do not exist in nature - it is always a combination of two or more colors that adds zest to a living or non-living thing.

Step 4: Click on 'See All' against the Gradient Shapes category. Then, choose from the multiple shape options that suit your design.


Step 5: When you have chosen your favorite gradient, feel free to customize its size and color. In the image below, we have introduced a pinkish arrow from the library of gradient shapes.


That's it, you're done. Your design will look stunning with our customized gradients.
