I have just installed Photoshop ( thank you Father Christmas) and can't wait to get started.

I have a bar / restaurant in SW France. I speak English.

I will use PS for publicity projects like my website, flyers and posters. My first job is to create pics like the one attached. The technique is either gradient or graduation I think. gradientWithChair.jpg I would be glad of any advice that you would like to give so that I can steam ahead with it.

I look forward to exploring your forum, I think it will be a lot of fun.

Hello and welcome to PSG. Nice to have you aboard.

As for your question.
For control and edit ability, I would use a Solid Color fill layer, set to a sampled color from the image, over the original image and then use it's layer mask to add the gradient with the Gradient Tool set to a foreground to transparent preset, linear gradient, and black as the foreground color.

Wow! Thank you so much, you're very kind to give such detail, it's much appreciated.
Your very welcome. If you have any more questions let us know.

I see that I forgot to inform you how to get a Solid Color Fill layer.

Or two, click and select from the half moon icon located at the bottom of the layers panel.

Thank you, I guessed it would be like AI but haven't had a chance to try yet as the restaurant is open today. I will be up bright and early tomorrow!
