Photoshop Gradients has to be one of the coolest features of the Photoshop application. Allowing you to create a gradual transition across two or more colors through its Gradient Tool, this gradient can be applied to any given area you select on an image or background. If you do not select an area, the gradient then is applied to the whole layer. Many designers who already have a clear idea of what colors to use, make their gradients with a specialised tool. Outlined below is a selection of some really cool ones which have been developed by studios and graphic designers from all over the world.

You can use these gradients for everything from text overlays, graphics and album covers, to social media stories and posts, banners and branding.
