At first, open an image which will be the background layer. Duplicate the background layer. Click on ‘Create a new fill or adjustment layer.’ Select gradient after that. There will be five styles available and we will use as much as we need for the image. Select ‘Diamond’ at first. One can position this diamond shape by using the mouse and dragging as well. Choose an angle that best suits your image. Now select ‘Gradient Editor.’ One can change the color of the diamond using preset. Then, click on color and colorize it if that what you want at the top slider. Mae sure the opacity is at 100 percent there. Now, select a nice color using the slider below. This time make sure the opacity is at 0 percent. Click OK when done. One can always re-size it with the help of the ‘Scale.’ Change the blending mode from normal to ‘Screen.’ Click on ‘Create a new fill or adjustment layer.’ This time select ‘Linear.’ Re-size the Linear Style with the ‘Scale.’ Angle it with the angling option. Position it using the mouse. Click on ‘Gradient Editor’ when done. Click on the slider and then select ‘Color.’ Try to choose a darker color. Then click OK. You can change the blending mode from normal to ‘Screen.’ This will sum up the whole process.
I hope that it will help you and from now on, hopefully you will follow this procedure more often in Photoshop and be an expert in this field in the future.
