Applying Gradient in Part of Picture

Recommended Posts

I am trying to draw a circle split in three equal parts and apply a gradient in each of the 3 segments. When I apply the gradient tool, the gradient get applied to the whole canvas, not the region in which I would like to apply it. How do I go about applying the gradient separately to each segment of the circle?

To apply a gradient to a section, you need to first create a selection around that region. Use either the lasso select (pdn35icons.LassoSelectToolIcon.png), the rectangular select (pdn35icons.RectangleSelectToolIcon.png), the circular select (pdn35icons.EllipseSelectToolIcon.png), or the magic wand (pdn35icons.MagicWandToolIcon.png).

EDIT: Beaten.

You could also try my new Shaped Gradient plugin (still at development: may be a bit slow but is fully functional.) It can be found here ->
