Smooth Gradients is a set of 12 gradients that ease from one colour to the next. They work well as backgrounds or to change the effect on images.

Below I am showing the effect of 5 of these gradients on a selection of images. I also state the blending mode and opacity of the gradient overlay.

Smooth gradient 3 has been applied to this image, using Color Burn at 70% opacity.

Pink Peony

Using smooth gradient 5 with Color Burn at 50%, the colour of these flowers pops a little and gives a little more definition.

Smooth gradient 7 took some of the brightness out of this image, adding more definition. I used Color Burn at 50% opacity.
