Okay, let's get started on creating our web gradient.





From the Toolbox, grab the Gradient tool.

The default gradient that's set for the Gradient tool is Foreground To Background. That means that the starting color in the gradient will be the color that's loaded into the foreground color swatch at the bottom of the Toolbox. The ending color would be the color that's loaded into the background color swatch.



On the Options bar, click the drop-down arrow beside the gradient swatch.

This opens Photoshop's Gradient Picker. You can either choose from the set of available gradients, or open another gradient library. To open a new gradient library, open the Options menu in the top-right corner of the Gradient Picker, then choose from the list of libraries towards the bottom of the Options menu.





For example, click and drag from the left side of your document to the right; or from the top to the bottom. You can even drag on an angle if you wish. If you'd like your gradient to be perfectly straight either horizontally or vertically, hold down Shift as you drag.

Sometimes it takes a few tries to get the look you're after. Once you're done, you're ready to save the file out for use on the web.


Choose File > Save As; then name your file and choose JPEG from the Format menu.
