    They are all taken from Adobes real sky gradients
    <a class="postlink" href="http://photoshoptutorials.ws/photoshop-downloads/photoshop-gradients/15-realistic-sky-photoshop-gradients.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://photoshoptutorials.ws/photoshop- ... ients.html</a>
    Which we all know its impossible to run them in Gimp so i recreated them in Gimp for someone on Gimp Chat.
    Topic - <a class="postlink" href="http://www.gimpchat.com/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=1786&p=22718&hilit=real+sky+gradients#p22636" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://www.gimpchat.com/viewtopic.php?f ... nts#p22636</a>
    Thought i would just share them here.Some i have to admit did not turn out the way i wanted.The stops aren't exactly right.

    I also have a tutorial there for creating SVG gradients for Gimp.It can be found in the topic thread at Gimp Chat.
    In that same topic i have an idea to run them through a colored image hexcode table generator.
    The program can be found here on my website here - <a class="postlink" href="http://simply-signage.com/ImageEditor/AsciGen/index.php" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://simply-signage.com/ImageEditor/AsciGen/index.php</a>
    Just select table and browse for an image (try a small one first).
    Settings to run the image through the program
    Output mode select - table in the drop down menu
    Place a tick in color and anti-aliasing
    Select a cell width and cell height of 1 and click render.
    Results

    The top image is all hexcode in a table.
    The bottom image is actually the PNG image it copied.
    If i can get gradient images to run through the generator without bazillions of color codes i may be able to furnish a good Adobe GRD converter to text.
    Then its just a matter of opening any GGR (Gimp gradient text file) in your text editor and changing the hex codes for the colors. :)

    Which is possibly adaptable to SCM scripting or python.
