Bumping an old thread to see if Chris, or anyone else, has made or come across good GM tutorials.

Re: Gradient maps different uses and techniques?

Here's a quick tutorial on how to use a Gradient Map to make luminosity selections within an image -

Tutorial

@ Flashtones - I think I saved the gradient created in the tutorial above in my gradient map set download? For anyone else who may want some gradients to experiment you can find a mixed set of gradients I have gathered and created here -

Re: Gradient maps different uses and techniques?

These posts and links to tutorials and sample gradients have really been a help to me in beginning to work with gradient maps (thanks to all!!) - I've tried before, but didn't really understand what they could accomplish. Seeing the colorizations and de-colorizations that the mapping can produce motivates me to practice to learn better control -- I am still at the stage where I have to see what happens when I move or create a color stop, but at least I have a better idea of what I am trying to do.

I love Photoshop - worked with it for years and still have SO much still to learn!

Obviously you can save them. I did that. The problem is accessing them and making them function.
OMG.. so it's not just me!!!
Ha I thought I was half brain dead, not being able to figure out how to load gradients I'd saved.

Hi, can someone tell me why I don't see changes when modifiying the opacity inside the gradient map editor?

Thanks in advance

Re: Gradient maps different uses and techniques?

The opacity is not active within gradient maps. Only on Gradients.
I know. Its confusing.
