I am going to ask this question as best as I can. I am working on a jpg that\nwill be a solid color of purple and as the color purple moves across it\nslowly changes to white. No I have used the gradient tool but the problem I\nam have is that it will not change the color as it moves straight across. It\nwill change the color in just about any other direction except straight\nacross. I know I must be doing something wrong and would like for someone to\nexplain to me what I am doing wrong.
