Steps

  1. 1
    To begin, we should have Photoshop open with a new or existing document.
    Once we do, our screen will look like the tutorial. We can see that this particular document is in its own tab on the left-hand side. If we open another document it will be next to it on the right-hand side.

  2. 2
    On the column on the left-hand side, click the bucket icon.
    This is a very simple filler tool.

    We can click the color box at the very bottom to change the color.

  5. 5
    Now we click what we'd like to color.
    That particular color will be filled in as a block color. This is a bit of a difficult example because it's quite messy at the bottom. If it's a neat circle, for example, then it's great. In this case, we're better off using the selection tool, which we demonstrate in another video.

    We can right-click on the bucket on the left-hand side to open a menu.

  7. 7
    From here, we can get our Gradient tool.
    In this example, we will see that it's going from red to white in this example. We don't have a bucket anymore, we have a little cross for a cursor.

    We hold down the left mouse button and pull the line across as far as we'd like.
    If we do a very long line, the gradient will look slightly different. We can do a line diagonally, which will make the line pixelated.

  9. 9
    Let go of the left mouse button to add a gradient.
    This takes over the entire canvas. It doesn't matter what our background image is, the gradient will take over the whole canvas unless we've selected a specific area. We can see that this gradient is half white and half red.

    If we do a very small gradient, then it's a very sudden color switch.

    If we go from edge to edge, we see it's a much more gradual gradient.

    We can also make it diagonal and experiment.
