A brief overview of CSS
CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) is a language for indicating how websites are presented to users—how they are styled, laid out, etc.
CSS takes the main role in building, designing the background as well as altering the colors and effects for the websites.
If HTML is the basic frame of a house, CSS is considered the design and decor that make the house more colorful and interesting.
What is Gradient
In graphics, a gradient is a set of colors that specify a range of dependent colors, often used to fill an area.
In other words, a gradient is an image that smoothly and harmoniously fades from one color to another. Simply speaking, a gradient is the combination of two or more colors.
Some types of Gradients in Photoshop:
- Linear Gradient
- Radial Gradient
- Angle Gradient
- Reflected Gradient
- Diamond Gradient
In nature, there is always the existence of harmonious gradients, such as the colors of late autumn leaves, rainbow, or sunset sky, which bring us familiar and comfortable feel.
A Text Gradient, simply understood, is a text with a set of continuous colors that make it look attractive and remarkable.
You can use Linear Gradient to create the Text Gradient. Thinking about the colors of sunsets is the best example of a linear gradient and how each color blends continuously, beautifully, and harmoniously into the next color.
