Need help with Adobe Photoshop. Doing a gradient metallic text effect, and don't know how to make this custom color.

The instructions for the tutorial say to select gradient and use the following inputs:  Left to right: #8B742D -> #FEEEB0

Trouble is, I don't see anywhere to select or input these numbers. Please help. Thanks in advance.

    You need to convert them to RGB colors. Many photo editors support Hex-based colors.

    Here's a great little converter for future use:

    For now, #8B742D = R139 G116 B45, and #FEEEB0 = R254 G238 B176
