The Ultimate CSS Gradient Editor was created by Alex Sirota (iosart). If you like this tool, check out ColorZilla for more advanced tools such as eyedroppers, color pickers, palette editors and website analyzers.

As you might know, HTML5 introduced many exciting features for Web developers. One of the features is the ability to specify gradients using pure CSS3, without having to create any images and use them as repeating backgrounds for gradient effects.

Important: You'll need a recent version of Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera or IE to use this Gradient Generator. The resulting CSS gradients are cross-browser - they will work in these browsers and will also fall back to a simpler gradient in older versions of Internet Explorer.

Links to CSS gradients documentation: in Firefox, Safari and Chrome (Webkit) [older], Internet Explorer and Opera [2].



The main gradient control allows you to:

You can use the 'Stops' panel to conrol the color and the position of the currently selected stop more precisely.

The 'Preview' panel allows previewing the current gradient as a vertical or horizontal one, and also allows quickly previewing how the Internet Explorer fallback gradient will look in IE.

Finally, the 'CSS' panel always has the CSS for the current gradient for easy copying and pasting into your stylesheet. You can also use this panel to import an existing gradient CSS into the tool.


The 'Ultimate Web 2.0 Gradients' preset gradients were derived from work by deziner folio and SGlider12.

The Color Picker is a minor adaptation of John Dyer's Color Picker.

The Base-64 encoder function is from webtoolkit.
