Did I say "free gradients for Photoshop"? Yes, it looks like that 😉 . Gradients are really not on the peak of their popularity today. They are not on the list of trendy flat style features either. However, sometimes we need to come back to the good old things to spice up our designs.
For instance, not so long ago I did an infographics for you. Do you remember this Sketch vs Photoshop battle? The initial design concept was absolutely minimal, but when I saw the result it disappointed both me and designer. Why? It was boring!
The designer offered to use free gradients for Photoshop and a decorative grid in the Photoshop gradient background . The elements made the project outstanding, so I advise you not to forget the old, time-tested buddies 😆 .
The gradient, as you probably know, is a fill consisting of two or more colors smoothly blending together. In this post, I come up with 25+ beautiful Photoshop gradient sets free for download and use. With these tools at your disposal you can style your backgrounds, buttons, tabs, icons, toolbars, and all sort of this stuff. Also, they can be effectively used to bring spectacular sky, landscape, retro gradient Photoshop, or dark effects, and other types of effects and layer styles that you prefer.

A gradient in computer graphics is a smooth transition from one color to another or from color to transparency. Very often it’s used to create numbers of effects.
For this use the Gradient tool (Gradient) on the toolbar. Then:
select the area you want to fill with a gradient;
activate the Gradient tool in the Photoshop toolbar or press the "G" on the keyboard;
activate the required gradient parameters in the settings panel;
click on the place of the image where the gradient should begin and then drag it using the left button of the mouse to the endpoint of the gradient.
By default, several gradient patterns are available in Photoshop but you can also use other sets. Again, tear off the gradient palette at the top right is the gear icon. Click on it.
As a result, the list is opened. At the bottom of it, there are additional sets of gradients, each of which is based on a certain topic. For example, metallic, pastel, noise and so on.
Select any set from the list. Photoshop will ask you if you want to replace the current gradients with new ones. If you agree, it will simply add new gradients below the originals. As you can see, restoring the initial is not very difficult.
