Chapter 3. Creating Graphics > Transforming Gradient Fills

Transforming Gradient Fills

After you create a gradient fill, you can transform it by adjusting the size, rotation, width, or center of the fill with the Gradient Transform tool (formally called the Fill Transform tool). For a radial gradient, you can now adjust the focal point (center) of a gradient fill applied to an object (). You can also use the Gradient Transform tool to modify a bitmap fill.
