In this episode of 3, 2, 1, Photoshop!, Julieanne will demonstrate how to create a custom Gradient in Photoshop.
Tips/shortcuts mentioned in the videol:
When using the Gradient tool, check “Dither” on in the Options bar to minimize banding over long gradients.
The Gradient tool has multiple styles to choose from (Linear, Radial, Angle, Reflected, and Diamond). ‘[‘ or ‘]’ will move you quickly from one to the next gradient style.
‘,’ (comma) or ‘.’ (period) goes to previous or next gradient swatch in the Gradient Preset Picker. Shift + ‘,’ (comma) or ‘.’ (period) goes to first or last gradient swatch in the Gradient Preset Picker.
Double clicking on a gradient stop in the Gradient Editor will bring up the color picker. Option -drag (Mac) | Alt -drag (Win) on a gradient stop to duplicate it.
