Text Fading Tips!
|Text:||Enter the text here which you want to apply your colour gradient to. A maximum of 512 characters will be accepted.|
|Two-Way:||Normally your colour gradient will start at the first colour and fade through until it reaches the last; checking this box will make your gradient after it fades through to the last colour then fade back to the first colour again. It's nice, try it!|
|If you only have a short text, such as a headline or title to fade, you may want to increase the font size to make the output text nice and big.|
|Fade Me!||This is what it's all about! Press this button to create your colour faded text! The resulting text will appear in the bottom frame.|
Colours Selection Options:
|Each colour selection line contains two objects. One is a drop down list containing various named colours you may choose from, along with a number of "random colour" options. Beside this is an input area where you can manually type the colour code of the colour you want.|
|The way the system works is that if there is any text in the colour code input box then that will be used. If the colour code input box is blank then the item selected by the drop down menu will be used. So if you have typed a colour code and want to revert to using the drop down menu to select colours, you must delete all text from the colour code input area on that line.|
|In these areas you choose the colours which will be blended across your text. The basic fade only takes two colours, but the advanced fader can be set to accept up to 8 colours. For a real "tie-dye" look, try fading 8 random colours, and select "two-way"! See Colour Selecting for more information on the controls.|
|The background colour of the entire page that the generated text is placed on. See Colour Selecting for more information on the controls.|
A colour code may take one of two forms. The standard notation for an HTML colour code is the #RRGGBB representation; which is to say a # sign followed by six hexadecimal digits, the first two indicating the level of Red, the second to the level of Green, and the last two the level of Blue---in this way any of 16 million colours can be created.
The other way is by using the actual colour name, such as simply typing blue, or green, or pink, or navy, or any of the 140 colour names defined by Netscape (which are all listed in the drop down colour selector box).
