I tried to explain, how I do quick and easy dithered gradients. If you once understood it, it's very very easy ;) And much more faster than doing all the dithering pixel by pixel.

Please ignore english mistakes; I tried my best with english >.>

I love your tutorial, but I have the new MS paint, which doesn't have the Image button. Is there any other way I can access the dithering pattern?

Yep, the top left button (menu icon) and then choose settings or performance (I'm not sure how it's called in the english version); and then choose black&white ;)

Dithering are the many dots which make the colors look smoother ;)

It was a bit tricky to actually do it, but it's an easier way to gradient! Thank you so much for the tut! I'll post the results when it's finished!
