How to create a line to a circle in Photoshop?


I am trying to make circular lighting effect as shown in this pics

enter image description here

I was thinking of using a gradient tool to make a straight line with dark blue and light blue colors. Then I was thinking of converting that line into a circle. That's where I am stuck at. I cannot make a line into a circle. I have googled it and polar coordinates filter just doesn't work. I am using adobe photoshop CSS

Does anyone know how they will approach this problem?

Accepted Answer

Create circular shape with ellipse tool and set no fill on inside; apply gradient to stroke, set it to be angle-based, and set the angle to your liking. Hope it helps!
