Edit gradient in Photoshop

Article ID: KB101744

How to change the effect depends if you are changing a raster layer that has been created with the gradient tool or changing a layer that has a gradient overlay effect applied to it.

Gradient overlay effect:

  1. If necessary, expand the layer effects by clicking on the arrow next to the 'f" icon for that layer in the Layers palette.
  2. Double-click on the Gradient Overlay effect.
  3. Click on the gradient color patch to open the Gradient editor.
  4. Modify the colors of the gradient by clicking on the color patches or by adding more color patches.
  5. Click OK, then OK again, to apply the color changes.

Raster layer effect:

  1. Lock the layer by cliking the "lock transparent pixels" icon at the top of the Layers palette while the layer is selected.
  2. Select the Gradient tool.
  3. Set the gradient options... set the foreground/background color if necessary and select one of the gradient options from the options bar dropdown.
  4. Click, hold shift (to constrain the direction of the gradient), drag, and release to apply the gradient.
