Pay there it is Graney in time. And what we want to do is this image here we’ve added this coup retro kind of style gradient and to show you how to do that. Now in Adobe Photoshop. Let’s go first. Let’s open up two images. OK. It’s in the same color folder. It’s called gradient or one ingredient or two from Jordan Andrews thank you Jordan. So we’re going to start with gradient 0 1. We’re going to do two things we’re going to add gradient to text and we’re going to edit the image in the background we’ll do the takes first is the easiest to do. OK so we’re going to have a full section on doing type a little bit later in the course but for now click on this capital-T your type to click once on your keyboard. OK. And over here in terms of the font size pick a font any font you like K and a size. I’ve got mine up to about 80 K.. Yours is pointy forward to 10 or 12. And over here we are going to type in all the return stuff. Don’t worry too much about type at the moment and move your top around. We’re going to use owl move to K and I’m just going to click and drag it around. So adding a gradient to this. Changing the color of the fonts easy you can double click here. Picking your font. But let’s look at adding color Kate to do it. You need your tix last selected is mine. It’s got that gray box around it and down the bottom here. There’s one called a fix. There’s one in here called gradient overlay. Now what you find in Photoshop is that pretty much everything you do in Photoshop is like three or four different ways of doing the same thing. What I’m trying to do is that and I’m trying to give you I guess like there’s about three different ways of applying gradients. This way I feel like is the most perfect in of future proofing. Just means that’s gonna work probably on most circumstances where some of the other gradients don’t work in all cases. Anyway what I’m saying is is that later on you might go hey why didn’t he show me that version of this thing and you’d like it better. It’s totally cool do it. If you stumble across a different way of doing something totally There’s nothing right or wrong about it. I’m just trying to I guess cut it down to some usable with the most usable versions. So gradient overlay and by default it’ll depend on what you lost had selected. Now what we can do is where is his gradient. Click on this little arrow here. Let’s move him up so he can see Colazal dropped an hour. By default you’ve got some horrific dropshot who’s gay. Well Grady and sorry Qasem terrible ones. And if you need rainbow colored gradients you my friends are all in luck. OK so what we’re going to do is have to go and customize it. So let’s start with this first one. Black to White is the easiest one to customize. Let’s click on the little area of a back up. So what we want to do now is change the colors used. And you do it by clicking in the Culbut here. That’s why it’s a little bit confusing. Using gradient overlay. OK so you click on this anywhere in the Chlorox. This thing pops up k. And what we get to do is use the bottom parts of these houses. OK so not the top hats. Here’s the bottom bit. So is double click this first class watch. OK. And using this huge slider drag it up drag it down find a color that you want to use and you use one click OK. Double click this White House same thing drag this huge slider up and down until you find a color you want to use then click in here. OK. And you’ll have that blue to purple or at least magenta clicking and click ok again and have a look at some of the settings. Whereas his reverse flips it top to bottom and we are using the Linnea style. So it goes in a line from top to bottom and you can adjust that which angle. OK you can see now it’s going kind of more left to right from the side to the side and you can decide any size and Linnea you can play around with radium and you can experiment on your own the different ones and go refl. just kind of different ways you can see the gradients on both sides. We’re just going to go for linear in this case and in terms of the scale you can learn down makes a bit more sense. Ninnis just got like any tiny little grating between these types you can leave mine at 100 percent that’s what you will probably say too. Now before we do the images I’m going to show you a gradient a kind of back in right when I I guess not even that long ago maybe six years ago. Gradients I didn’t even have in the class because who used gradients or gradients of come around full circle in a supercool now right. Or at least I think so. So where I get my grading colors from I’m going to show you a cool little site. It’s the site here is called gradient. I love it. All it does is just show you the examples of code gradients and and once you find one you like let’s say we click through here OK you can see there’s a bunch of different options. OK. I like on page two this one here. It’s my favorite one you will probably notice from other videos that have made and but this is where I get my clothes from. Now to get those colors into Photoshop the easiest way is see it on the bottom here is this yellow and pink. So those are the two colors right. If you click on a K that is the number you want says hash and then it’s got some letters and some numbers. So just copy that on your keyboard. So my next command seemed to copy. You can right click and go to copy jump back into Photoshop and in Photoshop when we clicked on to change color it’s that big Kaleeba there. Double click the green blue house. And this is where it goes down here. And paste it in and paste everything. I don’t think we need hash doesn’t seem to mind at all. You see the hashes over here. And that’s an easy way to pick a pick a from the internet is using these letters and numbers. It’s click OK and jump back into grab and grab this and here grab this thing and leave the Hesh off. Copy it back to photoshop that would like this house grab him. I love those colors and I click OK click ok again. You can make any last adjustments but that’s it for it doesn’t really matter what it is. And we’ve done it for type and a click ok but doesn’t really matter what the layer is there’s a little adjustment we need to do for images. But if it’s a logo Bordon or a shape from somewhere you’ve made an illustrator or a board and or drawn it with the shape torch will look in a second to do and you can just have a selected dented a fix and go to great you know really. Now the next thing I want to do is this image in the background and it’s a slightly different process. OK. Because first of all if I click on background this affix is greyed out. And this is going to happen throughout I’ll photoshop costs where you just it’s locked. It’s called background to unlock the background. Double click background. OK give it a name gamein issues and now it becomes unlocked. And I get to add that a fix. So that’s half of the thing we need to do. Now click on effects make sure that last selected and go to gradient overlay just like we did before. And the trouble is it’s kind of doing exactly what happened here. But icons of the image. So winds up happening is unique too. We’ve talked about all of this stuff. It’s this one hit blending mode K blending mode as a way of this gradient blending with the image itself. OK so click on normal and just dissolved does nothing. Duncan does something. OK. And you’re going to have to work your way through until you find a way a blend that works with your particular gradient and the colors in your image. Now there’s no like absolute one you should pick from this. It really depends on your image and the colors and your gradient. Is a bit of a lottery. So so took a multiply. See if that works for you. And it’s I’m just going to work way through until I pick something that I like. You know Tony Pasotti back up Clibborn loony bin is going to watch me now go through them all. LYDEN I kind of like it’s kind of got that retro 80s but in that kind of history way it’s hard to explain right. Gradings a coup now. LYDEN I know screens kind of a nice one. Call it dodge not so good. OK. I’m not going to go through every single one of them because I decided I liked had hotlines or I liked screen and that’s totally story line is Tony just based on my gradients and my images. I’m going to leave it there. So that’s the difference between doing images and just say straight off text or shape. OK is that first of all you need your layer unlocked then you add the effect like you do normally and just make sure when you do add your gradient you change that blending mode. Oh before I go Pervaiz super important point that I haven’t bought out yet is so would you want to adjust this gradient now. Turn it off. See also I hear you kind of see the structure. That’s my whole layer. And these are the effects can contain either the effect all the great in itself off to show through that original red color. OK so what we can do to it it is to send it off. That’s all you need to do is leave it there. OK but to edit it I’m going to have the eyeball on double click the word gradient overlay double click and you’ll see it’s gray here and it’s got a little tick. OK you might be accidentally on something else. Until that make sure this is gray. OK. And that’s where you can go and make adjustments. So let’s say that I don’t like that anymore so I’m going to reverse it or play with a different blending mode as well. OK. But that’s how you make adjustments. I’m probably going to turn it off and make this back to white. OK. So tick selected little properties panel here with tell me what color that I’m using. I clicked on it and to get white just has a little other thing before we go is this any of these hues it doesn’t matter if I click hold and drag and I’m dragging kind of past where I need it because up in the top left is white and down in the bottom left is black. So what I do is instead of trying to like some people would like to try and click and then get it pretty close. If you click and drag past some holding my mouse down and dragging it past that it shows it’s white. All right then I click OK. And if you want to tidy this fix up subtended off so you can see it but say that you are pedantic and you’ve got a bit OCD and you want to get rid of this. You can click hold and drag it to the trash can and it will get rid of it. All right so it’s project time. I’d like you to practice using this one here. OK so what takes you use but definitely play around with the gradient. On the image. OK. Go to Graben pick a color pick your own colors. You can you can do your own colors. And I’d like to actually see it this time though. We’ve been doing. You’ve been following me along. What I’d like you to do is I’d love to see your own one so dig through your files and see if you can find an image that you’re happy to share. OK. And and it can be you family can be your house and you can take a quick photo now of yourself and just to see what kind of gradients and stuff you’re doing and you need to post it here on this page and or you can share it with me on social media on Instagram is bring your own laptop. OK. On Twitter it’s Dan loves Adobe. Either way an image can be this one it can be your own one. And I’d like to see what you’ve done. All right. That is going to be the end of this one. Let’s jump into the next video. I’ll see over my.
