Angle grads (point source moves)

Apr 29, 2012 4:40 AM

Tags: #cs5 #cs6

I have created an angle grad layer to create light rays. When I use this layer and paint on a mask, the point source of the grad (a light burst) moves from outside the area I am using with the cursor? How can I lock the point source of the angle grad so that it stays outside the mask area.  Geoff

    Hello, In the layers panel, make sure that you are targeting the layer mask, and not the gradient adjustment layer.
