How Do You Do Gradients in Figma?

Figma is a powerful platform for digital design that allows users to create complex shapes, bold typography, and stunning gradients. Gradients are a great way to add depth and interest to your designs, and Figma makes it easy to create them.

When creating a gradient in Figma, the first step is to choose the colors you want to use. You can use the Color Picker or Hex Code tool to choose your colors.

Then, you can adjust the opacity of each color by using the Transparency slider or entering a value in the Opacity field.

Next, you’ll need to choose how you want your gradient applied. You can select from linear, radial, or angular gradients. Once you’ve selected your type of gradient, you can adjust its angle and position on the canvas by dragging the handles around the gradient box.

To further customize your gradient, you can add additional colors by clicking on either of the two color stops in the middle of the gradient box. This will open up a color picker window where you can adjust each additional color’s opacity and position on the canvas as needed.

Finally, once you’re happy with your gradient design, click “Apply Gradient” at the bottom of the window. This will apply all adjustments made to your Figma canvas.
