Re: Gradients - custom shapes?

St. James, to some extent you are confined to the basic Gradient Tools provided in PS - Linear, Radial, Diamond, etc. For others you will need to get creative. For example, to create an Oval shapped gradient, make a circular one and then use the Edit > Transform tool to stretch it verically or horizontally per the attached example. While you can make custom Gradient Fills, you can not create new Gradient tools.

Thanks Murray.

Thats what I suspected. Would be nice to have more options for gradient fill layers in the future. I think sometimes, the standard shapes are a bit unorganic

Indeed, but they are very useful the way they're.

Check in youtube, Illustrator Gradient Mesh, you will love that. PS must have that feature.
