    Chrome gradient

    Hi Everyone!

    I would appreciate some advice on how to proceed to make a gradient (which is what i believe it to be) similar to this icon.


    I already have the shape of the icon done, it's just the gradient I am uncertain of.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    That highly depends on the graphics software you are using.

    If this post contains any code, I may or may not have tested it. It's probably just example code, so no getting knickers in a bunch over a typo, OK? If it doesn't have basic error checking in it, such as object detection or checking if objects are null before using them, put that in there. I'm giving examples, not typing up your whole app for you. You run code at your own risk.

    Absolutely.

    Try applying a gradient to your image first, then manipulate your curves (Command-M or Ctrl-M) into an S-shape to increase the contrast. You'll have to play with the settings; I don't have a recommended number to give you.

    You can also add bevel to your image to add depth and dimension to the cog. Double-clicking on the layers menu will bring up a menu with options for color, distance, etc. It's a lot of stuff. Again, experiment.

    Just make sure your Photoshop file is in layers so you can manipulate different parts of the image.
