How to get background gradient with two colors I choose


N

NonTechie

I have PP 2007 with Windows XP. I click Design>Background and get the Format
Background window. Then I select Gradient fill. I get a diagonal gold wavy
gradient with white as the second color. How do I choose the colors that I
want and have the same gradient? The gradient stops are incomprehensible to
me, and no matter what I do with them and the colors, I can't get just the
two colors I want. How do I get a gradient with two colors of my choosing?

Use the "Stops". Each represents a color in your gradient. If you have
many stops, such as in a "gold wavy" thing, use the REMOVE button
until you get down to 2 stops. Set stop 1 then set stop 2 for colors
and you'll have a gradient with only the two colors you want. Does
that work?
