I am trying to follow this photoshop tutorial for css sprites and I can only get as far as step 10 of the tutorial. I am using Photoshop CS4 and whenever I try to apply the stroke to the gradient it reverses the direction of the gradient.
I cant for the life of me figure out if I am doing anything wrong or if there is a bug with Photoshop CS4 that I dont know about?
Here is a link to the tutorial I am trying to follow
How are you doing the gradient? I assume you are meant to draw a marquee around the button, then apply a gradient with the gradient tool. Then, with the marquee still active, go to fx in the layers palette and apply the stroke to the selected button. Works in CSS3, as far as I can see… but I may be missing something.
Could you describe what you are doing in detail? The tutorial worked for me by just doing what I described above.
I created a marquee where I wanted the button to be. Then clicked the gradient tool and applied a black to white gradient by dragging upwards across the selected area. Then in the layers palette, clicking fx > stroke creates a stroke around the button (following the dotted marquee boundary). That seems to be be what the tutorial is describing.
