how to create ombre tag cloud

I installed a template yesterday, and saw an accidental effect I've never noticed before. But I think it's so awesome, it's worth being applied on purpose. Check it out:



Ombre!

If you have a tag cloud installed on your template, and you'd like it to have this gradient look, here's how:

1. Open the Labels gadget - you'll see the Configure Labels window pop up.
2. Next to Sorting, choose "By Frequency".
3. Uncheck the "Show number of posts per label" option.
4. Save.

That's it! Your cloud will fade evenly between the two shades configured in your template code.
