Make a folder to keep your gradients in, and add the new gradient(s) to it. Note the entire path. (In Windows 10, you can right-click on the path and select “Copy address as text”, and later use Ctrl-V to paste it.)
Note that if you have a lot of gradients in your gradient folder, it will take Jwildfire longer to open the Gradients tab. You will want to keep the gradients you’re using the most often in that folder, and create another folder for the rest of the gradients.
In JWildfire, click Settings. In the Settings dropdown menu, click Preferences. The Preferences screen opens.
Scroll down to tinaGradientPath and double click on the blank space where the path is specified. Then type in the path to your gradients folder (or with the Windows 10 shortcut above, type Ctrl-V and it will add the path). At the bottom, click Save and Close.
To select your gradient, click on Gradient near the bottom of the Jwildfire screen. The Gradient panel opens. Click Gradient Library, then click Your gradients.
The panel at the far right shows the gradient(s) you added. Click on one, and that gradient replaces the flame’s original gradient. Now you’re ready to start trying out the controls in the Gradient section and see what all you can do with your own gradient!
Hint: Go to https://www.jwfsanctuary.club/information/gradients-list/ for hundreds of gradients to download.
Note: If you add new gradients to the Gradients folder while Jwildfire is open, click the Rescan button, at the top center of the Gradient screen to refresh the gradient view.
