Layer Style: Gradient Overlay

Sometimes you want a color overlay. Sometimes you want ingredient over light. Now one of the distinct advantages of using a grady in't overlay on something like a shape layer here is I can't very easily fill a shape player with grady in because if you know anything about shay players, a shape layer is just simply a color that's it so I can put a grady in't on any of my pixel based layers, but if I wanted to ingredient overlay, I can control that. And of course I get my full list of radiance that I have that I can overlay onto my object. Any different color, any different way I can reverse that I can control the scale larger small. I can change the angle of that like a linear radio. However, I want to control the opacity of it everything. So this is a great way just to apply ingredient to a certain portion of the object without going in applying a grady ended masking it to it and doing all of your blending modes in your layer. You can just go in and just do ingredient overlap so grating...

overlay like that and then I can that's gonna make it linear here we go, scale it up a bit, so actually scale it down and there we go so there's migrating to overlake
