gradients to apply a color in a transition from light to dark. It's useful for creating a dark-edged vignette for some images or a transitioned color background. Figure 10-10 shows different types of gradients.
Gradients are used to create some cool special effects. You can (for example) experiment with how your images look by increasing or reducing the opacity of a fill layer.
