How to create uneven gradients?
on Dec 4, 2013 at 6:46:01 pm

Googling around, I found a technique to use the Stroke layer effect set to 'inside' with the star burst effect, but I noticed these series of screen grabs and wanted to know how this was created.

I have been trying to figure out how I will see, for lack of a better way of putting it, an uneven distribution in gradient swatches in some of the backgrounds I see on sites like Dribbble.

Here's an example of what I am talking about. Note the gradient's non-linear protrusions the bluer hue makes in the red:
Uneven Gradient

This particular layer was from a photoshop file which had two other layers beneath it I think the original designer left behind as a way to show how he constructed the final image above.

Here's the first layer. A pink to light gray gradient:
Gradient Layer 1
Second layer. Some kind of Square/distort filter applied to the gradient. Does this filter change some hue values into the darker violets towards left of frame?
Square Filter?

Are these three layers actually showing the progression of making an uneven gradient from a linear one?
