Now we'll change the color of this new black point. To select a point on a gradient bar, you click on the box. It becomes black on the top, to indicate it's selected.
Change value of the middle black point
We'll change the value on the grayscale bar to the right, by clicking the little black arrow, and dragging it to a little below the middle of the bar. You'll see the color in the box is changing while we drag the slider.
Take a look at my illustration, it's value (color here) is written on the left, (#727272).

Now click the black spot on the left. We're going to change this one to plain white.
Now you can either drag the slider on the right all the way to the top, (to the white area), or you can just type it in on the left: #ffffff.
Here's the finished gradient:

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
