Last time, we posted about why Venus Control Suite has 2 different Content Editors and explained the differences between them. This time we are going to elaborate on one of the features we mentioned in Content Studio . . . gradients!
A color gradient specifies a range of position-dependent colors, usually used to fill a region. The colors produced by a gradient vary continuously with position, producing smooth color transitions.
When you think of gradients, think of multiple colors making up your background. Gradients can be applied to backgrounds to make your messages look more appealing and eye-catching!
We will show you how to take advantage of this feature in Content Studio and how to create truly amazing gradients. You see, a background with a single color looks good, but a background with a color gradient applied looks great!
Gradients are extremely easy to apply, as well. Just follow the below instructions to create a background that really stands out!
- Log into Venus Control Suite.
- Click on Media in the Main Menu.
- Click on the arrow next to the Upload button and choose New Content Studio Presentation.

You can also choose to change the pattern or orientation, and even add additional colors by clicking on the “More” button.
