How to Use Gradient Tool?
If you use Gradient Tool at the beginner level, this tool is probably the easiest tool you can ever use.
You just need to draw a line. That’s it!
Refer to the below image, are you seeing a line? That’s all you need to draw.
So, let’s begin with step by step.
Step 1: Choose the Starting and Ending Point
As you’ve grabbed the Gradient Tool, time to check the foreground and background color.
I am going with Black as my foreground color and White as my background color.
Now, whenever you draw a line, the starting point will have 100% of your foreground color and the ending point will have 100% of your background color. The middle area will have a transition from the foreground to the background color.
You can see it in the image below.
