Im having some problems on step 5 and 6 what is wrong :F
me to all it does to mine is make the middle of the gradient bars all pixely outlined...

You probably accidentally changed a blend mode or did a gradient on the wrong layer. Easy enough mistakes to make. Just make sure to read each step carefully as you go, and things should turn out ok. I wrote the steps as detailed as possible, because in this tutorial, every little detail matters.

The linear reflected gradient layer should be below the gradient bars layer. You apply the blend mode the the gradient bars layer not the linear reflected gradient layer.

Are you sure you're setting the blend mode to Color Burn and not Color Dodge?

I don't think you are, as i just tried it myself now, and got this:

Well, there doesn't seem to be anything wrong on what you're doing. Can you show me the gradient bar settings? It may be them that are causing the problem.

I used these settings and it worked fine:


  • [*:3cjy58vj]Alignment - 1.00
    [*:3cjy58vj]Scale - 1.00
    [*:3cjy58vj]Width - 1
    [*:3cjy58vj]Spacing - 0
    [*:3cjy58vj]Angle - 90.00
    [*:3cjy58vj]Antialias box was checked

In Paint.NET when you choose to save a file as a JPG, it gives you a dialog box with a quality slider. The higher this slider, the bigger the filesize will be, but also the better quality image. In this day and age of relatively cheap 1TB hard drives and 30Mbps internet connections, filesize is almost a nonissue. So go for quality.

Avoid saving as a .jpg unless you wish to save disk space. Save as a .png to retain quality, and it doesn't take up much more space than a .jpg.
