    How do I make a gradient fill any shape i want? If i have a star, or even a square and i want a radial gradient to fill that evenly (not in a circle shape). I am trying with the mesh tool but with no luck.


    Someone plz help.

    I've not got illustrator but its probably pretty similar to Corel. In Corel you would duplicate your shape then shrink down the duplicate. Then set your small shape to colour 1 of your gradient and set the big shape to colour 2 of your gradient. Then use the interactive blend tool on the 2 shapes and you should have a nice smooth gradient between the 2 shapes.

    Hope that works in illustrator

    In FireWorks,

    Use the Square Tool... Create your square where and how you want... Go down to the Fill selection at the bottom in the properties window, beside the color selector you will see a drop-down box with "Solid" in it. Select it and select "Linear". And now you have a nice gradient filled square.

    This is of course all assuming you're using or can use FireWorks.
