This is a new version of those 3D spheres. This new version is more chrome looking and uses a special
curve adjustment setting. I have the saved setting for the curve adjustment that you can download below.
First you will to create the circular selection. Use the marquee tool
and the shift key to create the selection. |
Set the foreground color to white and background color to black.
Then apply a radial gradient gradient starting from upper right to the lower left.
The start and end of the gradient is indicated by the red line in fig. 2
Gradient: foreground to background
Type : Radial
Select IMAGE > ADJUST > CURVES then load the curve file gemball. Hit the
ok button and the result should be fig. 4.
Now to apply the color, use IMAGE > ADJUST > VARIATIONS then select the
midtones. Apply the selected color or combinations of colors to produce
the desired color for the ball then hit the ok button.
