Improved Gradients Not Exporting Properly

I'm running into an issue with the improved Gradients when exporting a jpg through the export panel when using multiple gradients and artboards.
The preview and the exported image is not reflective of the gradient in the actual photoshop file.

I haven't been able to pinpoint the problem yet, but it seems that the gradient handles align themselves with the edges of all artboards, rather than just the artboard they are placed on.

Since another bug report was marked as "solved" despite there not being a solution, I am opening this new report to keep the communication channels open.

Currently tested version: PS 25.3.1 as of Jan 23, 2024. This has been the case since the introduction of the improved Gradients in 2023.

Reproduction steps: At least 2 artboards, at least 1 improved gradient, export as jpg or PNG.

Thank you for opening this up as a new entry. I have this problem, too. The gradients don't export properly and, as you show, the gradients treat all artboards as one artboard.

Also I am on PC, so looks like the issue is cross OS.

I'm having the same problems as well. The only thing that's changed for me in the past 24 hours is I've rebooted my computer. That's when the problem started.

Seems that there is a workaround that I've found in a different post, if you flatten your image in the layers panel and then export it it should work, just posting this here so if people find this they can at least have a workaround until they fix it

Can confirm that rasterizing the gradient layer resolves this export issue

Yes, rasterizing the gradient does indeed work around the export issue.

 

However, since this bug only surfaced with the introduction of the "new gradients", and the primary feature of these "new gradients" is that you can keep editing them, this workaround completely negates the "new gradients" feature. It's been our only option for the last year, unfortunately.

Dear Adobe employers, do the following: Select your new Gradient Tool, then right click, and DELETE IT!! Please, leave things as they where working. As Carlos Sainz says: "Stop Inventing".

A workaround for now is to duplicate the gradient layer, preserving the option for future adjustments, and merge it with a new layer. When exporting the image, use the merged layer and disable the one reserved for future edits. This effectively embeds the gradient, removing it as an effect on the layer.

Gradients and artboards have been bugged for at least 5 years now. Honestly, i don't think that Adobe is capable of fixing this issue, so your best bet is to find a workaround.
