  1. Well, first you need to download the brushes you want to use.
    To make that gradient-type fill will be a bit more complicated.
    1. Make a New Layer.
    2. Fill the New Gradient with the Gradient of your choice using the gradient tool. (It will fill the entire screen)
    3. Once the gradient is to your liking, look in the Layer’s Palette. You sill see buttons along the bottom of it. Mouseover the buttons to view their names. Click the one that says, ‘Add Layer Mask’. The gradient should disappear. (If it doesnt, make sure you are selected on the correct Layer, and the Layer Mask! Then go to fill>black. To fill the entire layer with black. Now! The gradient should disappear!)
    4. Now, click on your brushes tool, and select the special button that you want to use.
    5. Make sure you are selected on the correct Layer, and then the Layer Mask of that layer. (It should be colored in black in the Layers Palette.)
    7. Press ‘d’ on your keyboard, and use ‘x’ to make sure the color you are using is White.
    8. Finally, use the Brush, (which is White) to click on the screen wherever you want the gradient-effect to take place.
    😀 I hope this helps. You can google pretty much any effect it it doesnt.

  2. Open Adobe Photoshop CS3
    On your current piece of work or on a new blank canvas, select the area you would like to apply the gradient to.

    Once you have the area selected you would like to work on, hover your curser over the Gradient Tool button (Default Location: Left edge of the Program window, center of the tools menu). Apply pressure to the mouse so you click the Gradient Tool Button.

    Once you have this Tool selected, you can choose which gradient you would like to use.

    Linear Gradient (Default)
    Radial Gradient
    Angle Gradient
    Reflected Gradient
    Diamond Gradient

    Once you have your desired space to work and Gradient type, you can start to formation of your Gradient.
    Click inside your selected workspace at the point where you would like the Gradient to start (or with some the main focal point)
    Pull the mouse down and drop it where you would like the Gradient to finish (or fade to)

    EXAMPLE: (Primary & Secondary Colours)
