Some images will have a transparent background. To adjust the background, click the on the Background tool.
You should see an option on the left-hand side of the page that says “Fill Settings.”
Under “Fill Settings,” you will see two buttons: a color button and a button to adjust the gradient .
Click the color button to bring up a color wheel. This color wheel will allow you to choose your color and shade. You can choose a hue from the wheel and a shade from the spectrum below it.
Click the gradient (Solid) button to adjust the gradient. The default option is “Solid,” meaning your background is the same color and does not change in hue or shade. Once you click this box, you will have a dropdown menu. Your three options are: Solid (default), Linear, and Radial.
The Solid option ensures your background is one color. The Linear option allows your image to go from light to dark or from one color to another. (Think of a spectrum.) The Radial option is similar to the Linear option; if you select the Radial option, the spectrum of tone/color on your image will be circular.
If you select the Linear option, a tool should appear on your screen. The tool will look like a straight line. This line will have a circle or anchor point on each end. (These anchor points/circles indicate a color point.)
If you select the Radial option, you will also see a tool on your screen. The tool is a right angle, composed of a solid line and a dotted line. It will look like this . (The blue point will not change color and is not a color point.)
To change the shade or hue of a color point (and background), simply click the color point of choice. The point will become highlighted, and the color button in your left-hand menu will reflect that same color.
Once you have done that, click the color button and pick your preferred hue. This will change your color point and affiliated background.
You can also change the location and look of the gradient by dragging the color points to various locations.
So, in order to move the color point(s), you will need to click on one of the points and drag. The line(s) will follow accordingly. The closer the points are to one another, the harsher your gradient will be. The farther they are from each other, the more gradual the transition of color/tone.
By dragging the color point(s), you can also change the direction of the gradient. If you want your gradient to be vertical, horizontal, or diagonal, you can adjust the line accordingly.
