  • How do you create new gradients??

    I've been playing around with gradients in Photoshp - I would like to create some for web page backgrounds and save them so i can just use them without haveing to fiddle with them next time, but can't seem to get a handle on an easy way to work with them or create them.

    Please help!

    Thanks, Margaret

    Doubleclick on any existing gradient, edit your beginning, middle, and end colors, and the stops and smoothness, then save with a unique name.

      Thnaks Doug - when I first read your response I thought "yes, I did that" and then I went back and tried again and Voila!!

      I have no idea what I was doing before, but it sure wasn't working for me.

      Take care, Margaret

        I agree, duplicating and then editing an existing gradient that is close to what you want is ideal.

        What version of Photoshop? It is slightly different between v5 and later versions.

        I remember the first time Adobe Illustrator had multiple colour/step gradients (before they moved to Photoshop) - they are far from intuitive to learn on your own, but when you do get the hang of them they are _mostly_ easy enough to use. <g>
