Layer Mask Gradient
by Linda Sattgast

A layer mask by itself is pretty amazing, but when you add a gradient, it gets even better.

In this tutorial we’ll use a gradient mask with a photo to create a fun card.

Skills practiced and learned in this video:

  • choosing a color to match a photo
  • creating a layer mask
  • applying a gradient to a layer mask
  • adjusting color with a Hue/Saturation Adjustment layer
