How to add a gradient in Photoshop

Gradients are cool effects, and can add a nice touch of depth or style to your illustration or logo – but how do you do it?

In this short tutorial we will see the basics of adding a gradient in Adobe Photoshop.

Here’s how to do it:

  1. Open your Photoshop project file and select the object to which you want to apply a gradient.
  2. In the top menu panel, select Layer > Layer Style > Gradient Overlay.
  3. In the Layer Style settings window, select the colors you want using the «Gradient» color picker. Finally, fine-tune the appearance of the gradient by adjusting the Opacity, Style, Angle and Scale of the effect. If you activate the Preview option, you will see the style changes in real time.
  4. Click OK

Quick tip: If you want to apply the same gradient effect to several layers, choose the«Make Default» button in the Layer Style window before clicking OK. Then, when you go to add a gradient to another layer, just click the«Reset to Default» button, and all your previous settings will appear!
