The Linear gradient is only one of five styles.
We’ll look at the others and see what they offer



Gradients,Fills and Erasing

Turn it around

The invert button in the

Options bar reverses

the direction of the

colours in the gradient.

Quick sample

Use the [Alt] key to

activate the Eye

Dropper.You can then

choose colours for the

gradient from

your image.

Finally,the Diamond style is similar to
the Radial style,except that the edges
form a square rather than a smooth circle.
This can be useful for certain kinds of vignette
effects,for example.


Next up is the Reflected style.This type
of gradient can be useful,especially for
creating masks and selections.In this case a
Linear gradient is created,but in opposite
directions from where you drag.


The next style option is the Circular
style.This is not a common one to use,
but can be useful.In this case the gradient is
wrapped around in a circular motion.The line
you drag doesn’t mark the size of the
gradient,but only the direction of the colours.


At the top of the Gradient tool’s Options
bar next to the preset pop-up are the
Gradient Styles.Linear is the default,but next
to it is the Radial style.Selecting this creates
a radial gradient using the selected preset.
The first point you click is the center of the
gradient,dragging outwards to the edges.
