We start today’s episode off by pulling in an image from Fotolia.com. This image will serve as our magazine cover. After we have our image pulled into Photoshop we are ready to begin stylizing.
We add Style to our magazine cover by using a Color gradient. There are so many awesome options in the Gradient Fill dialog box that you can really get in and play around a bit until you find something you like. In our case, we decided that we wanted our Color gradient to go from green to magenta.

We finish off by using some type and alignment Tools in Photoshop to add some Text to our magazine cover.
