Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Gradient adjustments, part of Photoshop CS6 Image Cleanup Workshop.
At times, you might find that the blemish, so to speak, that you're trying …to resolve in an image isn't actually a pixel-based blemish. …In other words, it doesn't relate to an object in an image you're trying to …remove, for example, but rather an unevenness in Exposure, Color, or other issues. …In those types of situations, we can apply targeted adjustments to help even …out the image. For example, in this photo, there is a …little bit of a bright section over on the left-hand side. …Even though the Exposure was relatively even, for some reason, the left side is a …bit brighter. Sometimes, you'll see this sort of issue …caused by lighting conditions, reflections, or other issues.…
But we can use a targeted adjustment to fix such issues. …In this case, I think if I apply a Gradient Adjustment, I'll apply an …adjustment that darkens the image but only affects the left side in a Gradient fashion. …So that, for example, the adjustment will affect the left edge of the image more …than it affects the image a quarter of the way in from the left edge. …
