CS6 Gradient to transparent not working??

Jun 20, 2013 5:48 AM

Hi there,

 

I'm in a bit of a rush - so thanks for taking the time...

 

I have a gradient in CS6 which I have set from 0% white to 100% Spot Colour then back to 0% white as I want the gradient to be transparent at the edges.

For some reason the 0% is not displaying as transparent on the screen, even though in the Gradient editor it does show the trasparency is there.

Any ideas????

    In Photoshop Spot Colors have no transparency as they exist as Channels.

    Could you please post a screenshot with the pertinent Panels visible?

     

    If you want transparency fading the color to white additionally to the Opacity Stops may not be a good idea anyway.

    Edit: Meaning that you may just want to have two Color Stops of the same color.

    The white Color Stops do not seem to make sense, please remove them.

    But be aware you are not working with Spot Colors if you work with Layers.

     

    I'm afraid I don't know which panels you wish to see

    In this case Channels and Layers seem relevant.

    Look in the Option Bar for the Gradient tool, and make sure the Transparency box is checked.

    Please make a Gradient Layer and post a screenshot with the Layers Panel visible.

    Check the gradient tool options and make sure "transparency" is enabled.
