Not sure what is happening, maybe a setting somewhere got changed, but when applying a gradient, colors are changing unexpectedly. Here I start with a black background, then select white and the gradient tool, and try to apply it, but green pops up:
Hi there, the gradient is made between the foreground color and the background color:
You might have the green color selected in the background color.
I see. I guess before I must’ve had the background color set to “clear,” so that it was mixing my current color on the canvas with the color selected in the foreground of the gradient tool. I didn’t know you could select a different color, aside from the color already on the canvas, as the background. More functionality, very nice!
Ahh, just discovered that left and right clicks are what assign colors to the foreground / background colors. Beautiful.
