How to turn an image into a gradient?

Recommended Posts

Sorry, but I'm a bit confused as to what you are asking :(


You want an image - with 2 colors - to look like a gradient?


What is the color of the original image?


Perhaps pick the two colors of your original image, say red and white.

Make a new layer above the image and draw out a gradient.

Then play with the blend modes to see what you get.

To draw a gradient, select the Gradient tool and click and drag on the canvas. The gradient will be drawn as a transition between the Primary and Secondary colors ( Color Mode) as the mouse moves. After the mouse button is released, the gradient can be adjusted by dragging the Control Nubs .
