    In this new video tutorial, Victor Gaudioso explains how to create gradients in Expression Blend.

    In doing a lot of speaking engagements I get asked lots of Silverlight questions.  From these questions I have noticed a pattern emerging whereby many people have a terrible time working with gradients.  Of course the real trick, as is with anything, is practice but before one can start to practice they have to understand the tools of the trade.  So, in this short, 10 minute video I show you how to duplicate a somewhat complex gradient while along the way explaining the tools required to do the job; namely, the Gradient tool, the color palette and the Gradient Eyedropper tools.

    In this very detailed post Deborah Kurata discusses gradients and how to produce interesting visual effects using them.Image

    Gradients are a good way to make your application more visually interesting. They turn a flat solid color into something more natural and appealing to the eye by creating an illusion of light and shadow. [...]

    If you are not familiar with the terminology, a gradient is basically a blending of colors with an even graduation from one set of color values to another set of color values.
