How do I create iOS7 gradients?
I'm searching for some techniques that offer similarities to the new Apple blurred gradient backgrounds. One of my clients is requesting a similar look to the new iOS, while I have some blurry photo graphic backgrounds they failed to capture the subtleties of the new OS.
The blending tool can create some very stylized gradients, however my lack of talent/expertise makes the majority of my attempts look messy. Any links fellow creators?
While the tutorial you posted in your comment has instructions for an entire iOS 7 interface, here are the steps for the gradient as asked in your question:
Gradients For Icons (Step 22)
-- Ahh the beauty of brightly colored, sharply graduated icons! Weâ€™re going to stay true to what weâ€™re seeing with the iOS7 beta and place those colorful gradients on the icons. Select the first icon in the Layers panel and go Layer > Layer Style > Gradient Overlay. Check out my screenshots to see what gradients I am using for the four icons.
