* Color-Indicators: These triangle points touch the color band. They can be changed in color, be moved, deleted, or new ones added.

* Color-Selectors: These are the buttons and box in the lower left corner. They allow for quick access to the following:

o Current Active Color, the left buttons.
o Foreground color, the middle F buttons.
o Background color, the right B buttons.
o Color Picker, the rectangular box right of the buttons.

* Location: In the sample above the second color is selected and its location is 30%. The zero point is the left edge. Most of the time, this information is irrelevant.

Preliminary Stage B

1. Fast Track: Here is a quick way to set Foreground and Background Colors.

Set Foreground Color to H: 211, S: 72 and B: 100%.
Set Background color to H: 211, S: 72, and B: 40%.

The sample Toolbox image shows the correct colors.

If the previous instruction was too quick, the following will walk you through the process carefully.

2. The Step-By-Step Method

* Foreground Color: Click on the foreground color box in the Toolbox. This will launch the Color Picker shown to the right. This sample is severely cropped for file size and layout considerations.

* Color-Picker: Duplicate the values shown in the sample.
o Hue value set to 211 degrees.
o Saturation value set to 72%.
o Brightness value set to 100%.

* RGB: Its values change automatically.
* Background Color: It is 60% darker and Brightness value is the only thing that changes.
o Hue value remains unchanged at 211 degrees.
o Saturation value remains unchanged at 72%.
o Brightness value changes to 40%.

3. Create Custom Gradient Stage
Let's change the Copper scheme to Blue...

* Fast Track
Here is the quick way to change scheme.

Change the active cream color to white. Move its position left from 30% to 25%. Delete, drag-off, the dark brown Color Indicator Tab to the right. Change the left Tab to the Foreground color and the right Tab to the Background color.

The 3 tab Blue Gradient.

Step-By-Step Method

o Click on the Color Selector F.

o Click on the Color Indicator tab on the left edge turning the left side light blue.
o Click on the Color Selector B.
o Click on the Color Indicator tab on the right edge turning the right side dark blue.

Two coppery colors in the middle remain.

o Click on the light copper Color Indicator tab.
o Click on the Color Selector box to open the Color Picker.
o Change the S: and B: values as per sample turning the light copper band to white

This leaves one more to change.

o Click on the dark copper tab and click in the Color Selector box to open the Color Picker.
o Set the values to H: 211, S: 95, and B: 70.
o Change its position from 84% to 74%.

The Final Steps

1. The Result:

The 4 tab gradient below is richer than the previous Fast Track 3 Tab gradient. Scroll up and compare.

Save This: Name it Tutorial Blue to the Gradient List.

2. Reapply Gradient

Go to the original Black Shape layer. If the Selection has been discarded, select it again by loading the "Full Size Mask" using the following method...
Select > Load Selection

* Channel: Select "Full Size Mask" from the drop down menu.


* Click on the New Layer button creating a new layer.

* Apply the Tutorial Blue gradient using the original "A to B" spread.

The resulting gradient image should resemble the sample.

3. Under Painting

In this case, the actual color scheme was not relevant. A modified Copper Gradient would have worked fine for the under painting. The above procedure was aimed at teaching you how to customize a gradients. Click Next for the Rainbow Facade Preparation.
