View Full Version : gradient filter for Mozilla
10-18-2004, 10:32 AM
is there any filter like
filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Gradient(gradientType=0,startColorStr=#96A392,endColorStr=#ffffff) ;
for mozilla ?
-moz-opacity:0.2; ... render no gradient

What exactly are you doing with the filter? I'm quite sure you can recreate it with images (even if it's text, as Moz supports PNG).
Edit: Here's a neat mozilla-only (Edit2: Not anymore!) example of using a PNG to create gradient opacity: http://offtone.com/scripts/gradient.html

all the gradient images I have seens in background color are horrible there is a kind of rainbow in the colors
with the IE filter it is PERFECT .. but I need something like that for Mozilla
1px width, 405 pixel height
top color RGB(150,163,146) or #96A392
bottom color white
with the white starting at 15% of the bottom :-)))
and with a repeat-x it must be perfect ... and it is not

So wait, you're using the filter property just because you don't have a half-decent image editor?
Check out www.jasc.com, or google for "the gimp", which is free (and darn good for free).

What are you using to make the gradient? Photoshop and Draw are both plenty capbable of it... No idea what you're doing wrong.

thanks a lot AaronW
but I get the same thing than you
try to apply it in that way into a <td>
and you will get waves .. not really a subtil gradient
of course in local in my computer I get it
if u use
filter: progidXImageTransform.Microsoft.Gradient(gradientType=0,startColorStr=#96A392,endC olorStr=#ffffff);
the gradient is perfect

I would guess it's because you don't have your monitor set to millions of colors... but that gradient doesn't look any better than anything else I've ever seen. So again, I think AaronW pointed it out -- if you're getting waving in your artwork:
1) Monitor wacked out? If that gradient he showed you looks wavvy, then you either have a better monitor then my calibrated 21" Apple monitor here at work, or yours is not outputting properly.
2) you're not building your files right.
If you're using a gif, then of course, 256 colors may not be enough for the gradient. If you're using a png are you using 24 bit, 32 bit... hell, 48 bit? If you're using a jpeg, then maybe you need to up the quality of the output when you save it.
SVG and flash are vector -- they will obviously put out better quality gradients due to vectors type of file -- but a rasterized image can get darn close -- much closer than any normal person would arguably see.
Since you said Adobe + Corel -- does that mean Corel Draw, or Corel PhotoPaint (they also own Paint Shop Pro as of last week) and Photoshop or Illustrator... or InDesign or something else:)?

I have adobe photoshop CS + Corel DRaw and Photopaint 12
and have 2 screen a flat one and a 21" normal a nokia Multigraph 445X pro which should be a good quality
you'r right my screen is 16 bits resolution .. I am using jpg with 5 % compression .... I have changed for 32 bits
.......................and it works fine
so ? ... i am just stupid :-))
thank you to everybody

Nah, you just didn't know -- it would've been stupid if you never asked -- all of us had to ask someone eventually:)
