Hour 10. Tricks of the Trade > Creative Fill Techniques

Creative Fill Techniques

You can employ a number of tricks with fills to give your graphics a little extra snap. Simple filled shapes can make great design elements in a Web design. You can use gradients and patterns to add more visual flair. You can also use these techniques in purely creative work to add style and realism to vector drawings.

Working with Gradients

Gradients are a very powerful graphics tool. A gradient is a fill that gradually shifts between two or more colors, as in Figure 10.1. Gradients use math to make very accurate transitions that span a full range of possible tones. You won’t have to worry too much about this. Fireworks MX makes it easy to apply and edit gradient fills.
