In Photoshop: Create a new document Create a shape Go to FX Gradient Overlay Click the the current gradient Create a new gradient Add color to the gradient path and you might want to use the color picker to find the colors Change the style to linear Play around with the colors:
As comments elude to, you need to create 3 separate shapes, each with a gradient at a different angle. This is not a single gradient. Once the 3 shapes are aligned, you end up with something similar.
It is not possible (or hardly possible) to crrate such gradient style. And it is not a single circle. It must have segments and these gradients are adjusted to obtain this kind of style
I found a collection of Photoshop brushes from a guy named Ron Deviny a few years back. He's got a set of bokah light brushes that may create the exact effect you are looking for: http://www.devineydesigns.com/Professional/Digital-Art/ May require some tweaking, but I've got a preview on my screen right now that look very similar.
You can do this fairly easily with two gradients and some masks. Black background New Layer Add white (reflected) gradient (Or whatever color you want) Use Edit Free Transform to "pinch" one end to a point (Hold down Command/Ctrl+Option/Alt+Shift while you drag a top corner handle.) Duplicate the gradient layer Add a layer Mask to the duplicate On the mask ...
I had to create a similar spotlight effect in Photoshop many years ago, and started with the colours I needed - in your case it would be blobs of mid-blue, light-blue and near white over a separate midnight-blue background. Create a much larger canvas and use a radial zoom blur. I found that draft or good, rather than best, gave a grittier smokier effect, ...
It helps a lot to add colours you'll want to use in gradients to your Swatches panel (Window > Swatches) first. You can do so by dragging the colour from the tool box to the panel. Then, with the Gradient panel open, drag a swatch over a colour stop to have its colour become the swatch's. You can also drag a swatch over the gradient preview in the Gradient ...
You can apply a gradient to a stroke as well as a fill.
Take the layer of the gradient to a new image. Add a new layer to the new image. Bucket fill it with the colour you want for the gradient. Set the new layer to color mode. Now you have the old gradient with the new colour. "Copy visible" to your original image and you are ready. Hope this helps!
To edit a gradient and its "smoothness" as it transitions from one color to another, you'll have to edit it. If you have created the gradient as a layer effect or as a shape fill, find the "Scale" slider. Jiggle this around and you can find desired smoothness of your gradient.
I'm not going to cover the creation of the gradient itself, as that is more a matter of personal preference, but I will go over the fundamentals of this effect. In the Layers Panel, double-click on the layer that you wish to add this effect to (Gradient Stroke). Then turn on Stroke. Under Fill Type change it from "Color" to "Gradient" and then you can ...
