Graceful Gradient

So, here we are!

Windows XP has shocked me by developing an unexpected ‘feature’.

As I was in a bid to design a pretty backdrop – I thought I’d save a 4 pixel image and save it as a bitmap. When previewing it as a Windows backdrop – I forgot to set the bitmap to tile instead of stretch. What I expected to happen was that some nasty pixilated blocks would appear on the screen.

But no! Instead a pretty gradient graced my monitor.

Obviously there’s limits to what kinds of gradients you can have – but it’s nice that it happens nevertheless.

    As a note that was pointed out to me yesterday. You must save the image as a Jpeg. It doesn’t appear to work with any other formats.
