Colorize: Using Gradients

This tutorial will show you how to colorize an image using gradients. By using this method, you will be able to colorize an image with multiple colours, rather than just one.

Start with your image. I'm using this one

After chosing an image, you will need to choose a gradient. You can either make your own or use a preset one. I have made my own gradient:

Make a new layer above the image and fill it with your gradient.
Set the layer to Color(Legacy).
Here is my final product:

You can also chose Blend Modes other than Color(Legacy) to achieve varied results. Here is an example of the same image with the same gradient, but using the Hue(L) Blend Mode:

You may also need to adjust the opacity of the gradient layer on some Blend modes, to allow the background to show thorough. And there you have it, you can now colorize images using gradients!
