Join Deke McClelland for an in-depth discussion in this video Three new ways to adjust gradients, part of Photoshop: 2014 Creative Cloud Updates.
…In this movie I'll show you three changes…that have been made to gradients inside Photoshop.…We're looking at a Mobius script that comprises three…different shape layers, all of which already contained gradients.…But I need to create some sort of shading…so that the strip appears to be overlapping itself.…Normally I'd use a drop shadow, but in this case, it isn't going to…work because not all three of the layers are on top of each other.…That would be impossible, so they can't cast…shadows on to each other, in other words.…
So we're going to have to use a Gradient Overlay effect instead.…So I'll go ahead and click in the top layer to select it, and then…it will drop down to the fx layer at the bottom of the Layers panel.…Click on it and choose Gradient Overlay.…And that brings up the Layer Style dialog box, which I'm going to move…down to the bottom of the screen just so I can see what I'm doing.…And I'm also going to change the Angle to 0 degrees,…so the gradient is flowing from the left to the right.…Now, I don't want a black to white gradient.…
