Adjusting both color and luminance

Again I have saved my changes. This time the file is called Baseline gradient.psd, after the fact that we have a baseline gradient map in place here, that's called sepiatone, it's the sepiatone adjustment layer anyway. If we want to modify a gradient after we have assigned it, then we click in that color ramp, gradient bar if you prefer, whatever, and notice that it's called Wooden boy. That's just fine. As soon as we start modifying it though, it will change to Custom because it's no longer the Wooden boy gradient. And so notice I can use these color stops.

Each one of these squares indicates a color stop, a significant color, a key color in the gradient. So we have got a total of five colors here, black, brown sort of dirt color, and a light peachy color right there, and then finally white. And you can change any of those colors if you want to, either by clicking in this color swatch, or double clicking on the color stop and that will bring up a Color Picker dial...
