How to make custom gradient?
Hey everyone. Smile

I have no idea how to edit/make a gradient with Gimp. I have opened the gradient editor, but whenever i click anywhere nothing seems to do anything. i tried clicking the black arrow,s the white arrows, but i don't see anywhere i can do what i need exactly.

when i right click within the editor area also, most things are greyed out making it unclickable.

any help?

i tried looking at different tutorials, but many help sections have their images not working anymore or maybe i am dumb and just missing the obvious here.

Guess youv'e found out now, that you cannot edit the inbuilt defaults. You have to make a copy of one first, then edit the copy one to the way you want it ,which you can then save for future use.
