An easy-to-use pattern generator that lets you create unlimited, attractive image with color gradient. Its single-paneled, intuitive graphical user interface allows you to easily set image parameters. Borders and up to 16 different text lines with individual properties can be added to an image. In addition to its basic function you can instantaneously fill text with a gradient pattern by cutting out the area where text overlaps an image, and can set the wallpaper on the Windows desktop to an image you have just created. A work of art can be sent to the clipboard, and saved in JPEG and Windows bitmap format. You can also save all image parameter settings as an SMP file to restore and modify the image later. ShadeMagic is a powerful tool to create cool material for your web pages.
