A gradient is pretty easy if you have the tools. Do you have any graphics software?

Moved this thread away from the dreamweaver forum.

In Photoshop, look for the Gradient Tool, in your tool panel.

No question too dumb, we all have to learn one way or another 8)
Did you consider a good Photoshop book or reading more in the manual? Plenty of good stuff there!
