Gradient Thief is a FREE gradient creator that lets you sample colors in images to create gradient swatches. Through this technique, it's possible to take a small image (eg, of a sunset) and sample the background colors to create a larger gradient swatch. By selectively sampling which colors you want in the gradient, it's possible to 'remove' foreground obstructions such as buildings and trees.
