Fantastic Photoshop Gradient Sets and Resource Sites

Using  photoshop gradient in visual design helps to add dimension to your work. Color generators and lastly beautiful collections of photoshop gradients. There are big variety of many color generators, color palettes and things like that, but not many really focus on Photoshop gradients.  I don’t know that’s good thing or bad, but I really love gradients, many beautiful websites and logos are created just by using color variations in subtle, very creative way.

That is reason why in this blog post I will feature sites with good color gradient collections you can easily download and bookmark for later and really good color gradient collections separately. For that research I am using DeviantArt, though of course you can go there and browse by yourself, but to find such good resources it always takes time and research. I tried my best to do that and showcase beautiful gradients, which may seem simple, but just download them and you’ll look differently then as I did. I would also recommend not to go straight and download whole gradient collections because not quantity is important, but quality. Even better solution at least for me is bookmarking such resource pages and when I need to find something, I know where to look and then I download just what I need and no more or less.

Now here I am listing downloadable gradients for designer community hopefully they will like and use this.

Official Adobe Website – Gradient Section

I really don’t know why, but this section doesn’t seem to be very popular, it’s DeviantArt where you can find really beautiful Photoshop resources and actually just everything else too design related. Anyway I found on this site many gradients worth downloading anyway, they have most recent, most popular and highest rated sections to sort out really outdated and not so good looking gradients.
