Quicktip: No more strokes in gradients

By: OSH Editorial    In: Photoshop Quicktip Tips and tricks

In most times, when you made gradients in Photoshop, there are some strokes that makes your gradient less attractive. A while ago I read somewhere how we can get rid of those strokes. I can’t remember where it was, but the filter in Photoshop I do remember because now I use it almost every time when I use a gradient.

-> Filter -> Brush strokes -> Spatter




NOTE: This filter works with rasterized and smart layers.

It totally despends on what screen you have. Those strokes are most visible on LCD and TFT screens. On CRT screens you won’t notice those strokes in most cases.

Do you use another way to solve this problem or do you have another tip that our reader may like? Please share it with us!

This is actually a good development. The stroke can be irritating at time. The work will be smoother and look more professional

I might be wrong but it works for me.. I think that setting your file to a 16 or 32 b color gamut would probably solve this issue.. Also setting your color profile from RGB to CMYK will help ;)
