How can i use this Photoshop gradient pack in PSP?

Postby psddude » Fri Sep 14, 2018 2:13 pm

Hi,

I downloaded these sky gradients https://www.photoshopsupply.com/gradien ... -gradients and I get a .zip file with a .grd file in it.

Can I use this in PSP? If yes, what do I have to do?

Sorry, I have very little experience with PSP

thanks

I have recorded a video as well to go with these instructions if you prefer live action: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1XnqphP ... cWxUr/view

1) Go to your Materials Palette and click on one of the big blocks of color.

2) This will bring up the Material Properties dialog - click on the Gradient tab
3) Click on the "More Options" button it looks like a white rectangle with a down arrow and grey blocks on it. This opens a drop-down menu.
4) On this menu click Import
5) Make sure you have the .grd file extracted to somewhere on your computer.
6) In the open file dialog navigate to the file and open it.

Now, PSP might throw an error that "this gradient already exists, choose a new name" this is because Photoshop doesn't care if gradients share a name. But PSP uses the gradient name as the file name. And you can't have two files with the same name in the same folder. So just be aware this might show up from time to time. It's easy enough to deal with, just add an extra letter or number to the end of the file name.
