    setting up a gradient

    barbaraf97259306 Level 1

      Following this link in the first paragraph I got stuck.

      http://planetphotoshop.com/fresh-glossy-text-effect.html

       

      STEP ONE: Create a new 850×550 px document at 72 ppi. Click the Foreground color swatch and set the Foreground color to #22272d, then set the Background color to #101115. Choose the Gradient tool (G), click the gradient thumbnail in the Options Bar to open the Gradient Editor, click the Foreground to Background gradient, and click OK. Now click the Radial Gradient icon in the Options Bar. Click-and-drag from the center of the document to one of the corners to create the background gradient.

       

      I got as far as setting the foreground and background gradients colors. Then once I clicked on the gradient tool and the box next to it I got stuck.So I tried skipping to the radial gradient icon and click and drag from the center but it wouldn't allow me to create a background gradient.1.png

      Thanks for any help in this.
