A Gradient background tab has been introduced with Avada 6.1. With this tab, you can add gradient backgrounds to your Container or Column Element, with a range of options for gradient colors, start and stop positions, type and direction. The gradient colors can also have opacity, just like in the Color tab. The default type is Linear, but you can also choose Radial.
As you can see in the screenshot below, you first choose a Gradient Start Color and a Gradient Stop Color, and then set a Gradient Start Position and a Gradient End Position. This controls how the two colours of the gradient blend. Experiment with these to see how this affects the gradient, but the default values of 0 and 100 give you the smoothest gradient.
If you choose Linear as the Gradient Type, the last option is Gradient Angle, and here you can choose from a full 360 degrees. If you choose Radial as the Gradient Type, the last option becomes Radial Direction, and here you can choose from Left Top, Left Center, Left Bottom, Right Top, Right Center, Right Bottom, Center Top, Center Center, and Center Bottom.
With these options you can create gradients of almost any type. These gradients also work in conjuntion with the Background Blend Modes, that we will look at in the next tab, Image.
