These gradients can be used both in GIMP
and Inkscape.



Two methods exist for importing gradient files into an already open Inkscape document. The first is to use your window manager to drag a file and drop it onto an open Inkscape window. The second is to use the File → Import... (Ctrl+I) dialog.

Imported Gradients will appear in the Inkscape
Gradients menu under Fill and stroke Shift - Ctrl - F

copy the .ggr Gradient Files to your local GIMP
Gradient directory.

~/your user directory/gimp_version/gradients

Alternatively you can place them anywhere you
want and point to those folders in program

to fill the selected area with the gradient of
choice.Gimp has a powerfull Blend Tool with lots

Another use for gradients is to use them while
painting. Pencil, Paintbrush and Airbrush tools
have options to use color from grandient instead
of foreground color.

is a choice to use a color from gradient under
pressure sensitivity dialog.

Any B&W image can be remapped to a gradient under
Color menu.

You can import a new palette from any gradient.

that done for a quick visual reference and
easy of use. Their names start with Basic.
These are playings with pure form of primary
