1000+ Free Photoshop Gradients for Designers

AD

Photoshop gradients are a unique resource. They can boost your Photoshop to a great extent. They are useful for designing not only raster graphics but vector graphics as well.

You might have noticed that Layer Styles option in Photoshop does not include many gradients, that’s because just like brushes or patterns this is something you add later on. But for some odd reason, we don’t find many gradients on internet. In fact, they are so rare that many photoshoppers are unaware that downloadable gradient packs exist.

So today we decided to make a collection of the freely available Photoshop gradients. You can find them below.
Each gradient name is linked back to the creator’s website and you can download them separately if you’d like… but as always, we are also providing an all-in-one pack for easier, quicker download.

You can also find a guide for installing these gradients into your Photoshop.

    These are phenomenal. Do Photoshop gradients work with Adobe Lightroom 4.3?

    1. Akkas says:

      Not all of them, but you just might be able to use a few.
      Usually lightroom gradients are designed in another way.
      Now that you’ve mentioned, I’ll start making some lightroom posts as well.

  2. Su Hall says:

    You are right. Gradients are probably the least touted of all the resources/pre-sets. They’re a bit tricky to learn how to use.

    This list is phenomenal! I have looked around the web, but, I sure didn’t find the bulk of these! Thank you!
