In today’s session we will learn about gradient tool and paint bucket tool
where and how is it used?
Shortcut of the gradient tool is G.
This tool is used for filing the colours.
With the help of this tool you can fill the colours in shades.
Now I will draw this much rectangle from here
We are going to gradient tool
To fill in the gradient tool, You have to draw a line
Stretched from here and drop here
see the gradient colour has been filled here.
Meaning If you want to make a shade and you want two or more colours in one colour as a shade
Then we will use this tool.
Now have a look here, different types of gradient colours are available.
Like this one, you can fill in this way.
In whichever direction you will draw the line, colour will be made in that direction
Many more options are available
In gradient tool there is an option called linear gradient
Through which, this pattern displaying like lines, if you want such a pattern then this tool is used.
Beside that there is another option called radial gradient
if you want a gradient like this in round, then you can use this radial gradient.
After that comes, angle gradient
in that if you want any line in your angle then you can use this.
After that comes reflected gradient
It is somewhat similar to linear gradient.
Similarly if you want this type of gradient then you can use this
And at last it comes diamond gradient
If you want a gradient like this in diamond shape then you can use this.
If you want to create your own gradient then you go here and double click, gradient editor will appear
In the gradient editor, here you can create your own gradient.
I will select a stop. Through this you can increase/decrease opacity according to you.
Then below, from colour stock you can choose your fav colour.
Like here I have fixed this colour and clicked ok.
After that, here at last I want some other colour.
I want to mix this colour in it
Let’s change its colour again, in this way and click ok
Here we have two colours, if I want to add a third colour so here you have to click here and after that, go here and you can add any third colour
And then you adjust this by moving.
If you want to delete this third colour that you added, then you have to select it and drag downwards
As you will drag, that colour will be deleted.
To add you just have to make a click.
As you will press ok.
See here is your colour pattern
Then you have to fill in it.
So like this if you want to make anything in shading, then you can use this
Now we saw, There was an option of opacity, opacity stock.
From here i will open an image then we will go again into it.
Select opacity stock, its opacity is 100.
Making it less than 100 i will do it approx 69.
let’s decrease a bit opacity of gradient at the backside to 86, now click ok.
Now i am filling colour on full page.
After colour filling, Now you can see that you can see the image but we added a shade on it.
If you want to make this type of image, adding Colour shade and image should be visible in opacity then you can use this.
After gradient comes a paint bucket tool.
A paint bucket tool is used to fill colours in any selection.
Here i am drawing a rectangle.
from here i have selected paint bucket tool.
Here are two options given.
foreground and pattern.
which means if you have to fill the foreground colour so you have to use this.
Let’s take a foreground colour from here.
Will add one nice foreground colour here, after clicking ok, go there and make a click.
See the foreground colour that i had select has been filled here.
Instead of this if i have fill it with pattern.
Then we will go here and select a pattern and from here whatever pattern you want to take, you can take it.
Even the pattern that you created and saved in the pattern library, you can take that as well.
or you can select any pattern of your choice and can fill here.
If you have any queries or comments, click the discussion button below the video and post there. This way, you will be able to connect to fellow learners and discuss the course. Also, our team will try to solve your query.
The Paint Bucket tool fills nearby pixels with colour values that are identical to the ones you click. The Gradient tool blends different colours in a progressive manner. You have the option of using pre-made gradient fills or creating your own.
Select the Gradient Tool from the Toolbox.
Using the Options bar, choose a gradient style.
Move your mouse across the canvas.
When you lift the mouse button, the gradient fill emerges.
Choose the region where the gradient should appear.
Choose a Gradient Tool.
Using the Gradient Tool in Photoshop, you may create a gradual transition between two or more colours. A gradient can be applied to any part of an image or backdrop that you like. The gradient will be applied to the entire layer if no area is selected.
There are two types of gradients you may make: solid gradients and noisy gradients.
