In this extension, you will add a custom background gradient to your infographic.

A gradient is a gradual change from one color to another.

A gradient can soften your background or focus attention on a specific area of the page.

There are many default colors and gradients available in Google Drawings, but you can use any color in the color spectrum by creating a custom gradient.

To begin, edit your background.

Then, customize a gradient.

There are two types of gradients: radial and linear.

A radial gradient transitions from color to color around a point, like the center or corner of the page.

A linear gradient transitions from color to color along a straight or angled line.

Choose a gradient type.

Then, choose a center or angle for your gradient.

Finally, select colors for your gradient.

Experiment to create a custom background that complements your design.

Or, create custom gradients to fill shapes, text boxes, and word art.

Enjoy exploring custom gradients in all kinds of projects!

Now, it’s your turn: Add a custom background gradient, Set the type and center or angle of the gradient, And select gradient colors.
