Photoshop Q&A

These are answers to simple questions that people often have about Adobe Photoshop.


How do I make something appear to be made of gold, in Photoshop?


Gold isn't a colour. It's an effect created my multiple colours. The easiest method is just to use the Gradient Tool (it might be hiding under the Paint Bucket Tool) with a brown colour and a dark orange colour.

Another method is to simply create a dark orange area, then bevel it. Right-click the layer, in the Layers window, then click Blending Options. Choose Bevel and Emboss, and then change the Gloss Contour to Ring or Ring - Double.

You can use both these methods together.
