Hello,

I am new. I have the attached image. Something like a gradient tool I assume was used to create the shading on the forehead and other areas of the head. I would like to change this gradient shading on the area from the forehead to the back of the head. What I would LIKE to do is make a selection of the area I want to use (of this forehead to back of head area) then use the gradient tool to fill that selection using greyscale range of color I select. I don't know how to use the gradient tool to achieve this. Meaning I don't know the process for accomplishing the task that I have explained. Any help would be appreciated. Torre

I do not understand what exactly you want in first place but I will give a try.

 

If you want to limit gradient to certain area then use:

 

  • Gradient adjustment layer with layer mask
  • Create new layer, select area on that layer then use Gradient tool which will be limited to selection or what is inside selection if properly done.
