Radial Gradient?[edit]

Shouldn't Circle Gradient be Radial Gradient? I have never personally seen a program that uses circular instead of radial. FrigidNinja (talk) 03:44, 11 January 2013 (UTC)

Yes. Yes, it should. And now it is. Thanks! CWC 05:12, 12 January 2013 (UTC)

Why Only Computer Graphics?[edit]

I'm not sure why this topic is limited to computer graphics. Peter Max used color gradients extensively in his artwork from the 60's and 70's. How did he do it? Not by computer I would wager. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.201.93.194 (talk) 03:46, 22 February 2013 (UTC)

This is a good question, it would be nice if someone who understands the underlying technical and/or mathematical concepts added their knowledge to this article. I want a bear as a pet (talk) 15:13, 18 October 2016 (UTC).

Other shapes?[edit]

Does the content of the "Other shapes" section make sense to anyone? If it does, could that person rephrase it so that it is more understandable than it is now? Because "taking two colors on the radius and not forgetting the aspect of a fourth one towards the interior of the radius" sounds like complete gibberish to me. Thanks. -- 91.56.248.228 (talk) 18:58, 4 June 2017 (UTC)

Seems to have been edited to "In some specialized occasions it is appropriate to grab a color gradient that takes two of three colors at the radius of a polygon or other shape and that doesn't forget the aspect of a different color, preferably the fourth, towards the interior of the radius or such a gradient may be removed by combining multiple color gradients, with the straight skeleton of the polygon used to determine the boundaries between pairs of axial gradients.[6]", which is still incomprehensible. I can't even make syntactic sense of it, where it says "or such a gradient". 99.230.45.8 (talk) 17:41, 2 April 2018 (UTC)
