In this Photoshop tips article, I am going to Design an Orange Manipulation Design with Photoshop. Photoshop Manipulation is the skillful handling, controlling or using of something or someone. Whether it’s the sculpture you made in art class or how you convinced your friend to do your homework — both are considered manipulation. But again in this lesson I will take a group of Images and create an orange Manipulation Design in Photoshop, while creating this project I will introduce you with Gradient, Layer Mask, creating shadow and other settings.

1. Let’s start creating this project with its background, like every project we need to create a new document by pressing Ctrl+N with width of 1920 pixel and Height of 1080 pixel. Select Gradient and open its settings, apply this 9ec3da codes to both sides which looks like Light Blue color but for the middle use white color with 50 percent location. After applying those settings and draw it like this.
