Adding Gradient Within a Marquee
on Oct 23, 2009 at 9:17:46 pm

Hi everyone,

I am having trouble adding a gradient to a selected area using the marquee tool. I have created an elliptical marquee, selected gradient from sidebar, white as my colour, foreground to transparent, linear, mode normal, opacity 100%, transparency selected.

I get the white gradient, but it bleeds outside the marquee. How can I make the gradient stay within the marquee?

When you selected the marquee tool, did you put the feather at zero?

Oops, sorry Theo, didn't see your post when I posted. At least we agree on what is probably causing his problem :-)

Thanks guys, you are both CORRECT. Feather needs to be at 0. I had it at 50.

Thanks again.

Two similar replies is always better than none...

Peter,

It normally does stay within the selected area. I'm wondering if maybe, when you make your selection, there is some number other than zero in the "Feathering" box on the options bar? If so, enter 0 px in there and try your gradient again. You'll probably want to keep the Anti-alias box checked however.
