Hi everyone! I've had the hobby of graphic design for a while now. Recently, I've been trying to recreate things like flyers and websites for entertainment. Sadly, I've run into a slight problem.
I'm currently trying to recreate a professional photobooth flyer. I'm having trouble recreating the dark to transparent gradient in the footer. Here's the original flyer: http://i.imgur.com/CMDbr.png.
Whenever I try to recreate this effect, it ends up being very sudden and unappealing. Here's an example (note that it is unfinished, leaving some areas white): http://i.imgur.com/ned6i.jpg
Is there any better way of doing this gradient effect (or does it even need to be fixed, for that matter?).
Any other suggestions about the flyer are welcome. Thanks!
Are you editing in 16Bit depth color you seem to be getting a lot of banding? If you not editing in 16 bit color convert to 16 bit mode before adding the gradient..
Looks like you did a linear gradient. The original is using a radial gradient or used a brush. Either one can accomplish that gradient.
