NSL WEEK 252- Adobe Photoshop “Gradient Editor”

I’m following up on
NSL WEEK 248- Adobe Photoshop “Gradient Tool Basics”

I wanted to jump into the Gradient Editor in Adobe Photoshop to show you guys what the buttons do =)

****

To access the Gradient Editor, activate the Gradient Tool and click on the Gradient Preview in the Options Bar at the top of the screen.

****

Presets are great starting points for your gradients.

****

This video focused on a Solid Gradient Type.

****

Smoothness at 100% will create a smooth transition between your starting color to your ending color. If you reduce the smoothness you’ll begin to see banding or steps in your gradient.

****

Here you control and edit your Stops. You have 2 types of Stops:

-Color Stops
-Opacity Stops
