Purple Gradients

These gradients have many uses, as showcased below. They can be used as a background, to lighten/brighten an image, to create a total colour change on an image, and in various other ways as well, of course as being overlayed on text or images to enhance the end result. The download button is after the showcase.

  • Blend Mode: Normal
  • Opacity: 100%
  • Reverse: Checked
  • Style: Linear
  • Angle: 90°
  • Scale: 100%

Lighten & Brighten

This example shows how you can lighten and brighten an already purple flower.

I used Purple Gradient 5 with a Gradient adjustment layer and the following settings:

  • Style: Radial
  • Angle: 90°
  • Scale: 100%

I then set the layer mode to Overlay and kept the opacity at 100%.

Pop Art Style

Not so much Pop Art, more transparency, but a nice effect either way. I used Purple Gradient 10 and a Gradient Map adjustment layer set to Linear. I then reduced the layer opacity to 83%.

I then added a transparency pattern overlay on a white layer with the Fill set to 0%, set the pattern to Overlay, opacity 58%. I then reduced the layer opacity to 70%
