Summer Gradients: a set of 8 gradients using summer colours.

Summer Gradients for Photoshop

Hopefully everyone is enjoying summer. We have been getting incredible temperatures, which inspired me to create a set of Summer Gradients. As always, these gradients are designed to enhance or change your photos, but work well overlaid on text or as backgrounds. Download button is after the showcase.

Creating a text effect here. Each line of text is on it’s own layer
