How to make a banner with 2 or more colors with photoshop


I need some help on how to create a banner with separate colors and how to take a shape and put it in the image.

Sorry for the way of asking this question.

What I need is in the screenshot to explain it better

The gradient definitely a tool that can be used but for the effect in your attachments, drag location boxes together (see below)

One of the easier ways to do this without a ton of PS knowledge is with creating multiple layers. Set your base layer to your primary color, then tailor your layers above it to span the different colors you want. This is good for hard color transitions like you linked.

However, if you want to create a transitional layer all on the same one, you will have to create a custom color in the layer. You can adjust the type of transition by double clikcing the layer, then using the styles on the left to change a gradient. I have a few pics linked below.

Capture one: The double click of the layer
Capture two: In here you can choose the gradient. If you see the sliders at the bottom is where you can add the effects of it middle ways, high, low etc.
