I'm new to photoshop of all kinds, as you'll soon learn, so I struggle to work out what effect(s), if any, certain images I find online have. At the moment I am trying to work out what effect(s) the images on the below links have, can anyone help? I assume they are the same effects on different images.
Thanks in advance!
Are you asking about the gradient mask towards the bottom of the images?
You can try inserting a new layer then use More (looks like an ampersand or "&"; it's the 2nd icon from the upper right) > Gradient. Use a linear gradient. Tap and drag the gradient to where you want it. Tap and drag the end handles on the gradient to adjust where you want the gradient to begin and end.
Tap the palette icon to change colors, opacity and add/subtract stops.
