need some he*lp with either a css to grd conversion or the ability to refine grad editor

I was trying to create a custom gradient using the dropper and an existing image in CS 6 when I came across this unique website:

http://www.colorzilla.com/gradient-editor/

The ability to import an image and get a gradient from it is just what I needed, however I don't see any way to get this into PS CS6. Is there any way to convert the CSS to the .grd file PS needs? Or, is there a similar gradient maker that allows save in .grd format?

An alternative might be to copy the actual gradient settings by hand into the PS gradient editor, but the gradient colorzilla created has so many stops and colors that this doesn't appear to be feasible.

Really in a jam on this one. I don't see any way to make the gradient maker in PS more finely tuned (i.e. much larger so I can add more stops, etc), and this looked like a possible alternative but I'm stuck with the format.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Jon

Well, in the absence of a specific tool, I think you may need to just do the work. Can you post the CSS gradient code? Making gradients by hand in Photoshop isn't that bad.

Save early. Save often.

Thanks. I ended up just doing that- inputting the stops and opacities manually. There were 100 stops and I had to try and get them as close together as possible. In the end, the resulting gradient didn't work out anyway, but it was an interesting experiment in case a situation arrives in the future where I need to do this.
