Looking to create an easy custom Background for BV without the help of graphic design software?

In BlueVoda open Shape tool>>choose gradient colours which fit your page best>>remove border>>adjust the shape's height to the same as the page's height>>drag and reduce the shapes width to about 10pix>>preview>>right click save the shape>>insert the small .gif file into page properties>>background.

Cheers,

Hi Talkative,

I take it you mean in BV?
I'm not sure of your application but there are two ways to achieve this or similar:
1) Logo tool in BV>>take the logo shape to text only>>fill effects>>text>>choose between path or linear gradient>>with or without text border depends if your gradient colours are similar to background>>play with the shadow for a nice 'stand off the page' 3D effect. or
2) Text (plain) on a gradient shaped background (shape tool in BV)

Cheers,
