1 Make a 500 x 50, 16 million color document. I used a black background on this example. Set Foreground color to White.

(Example of Foreground color set to White and Background color set to Black)

 

 

2 Draw a Rounded Rectangle using the "Selection" tool

Settings I used:
Selection Type = Rounded Rectangle
Feather = 0
Anti-alias = checked

Figure 1

 

 

3 Using the "Flood Fill" tool , fill the area with Linear Gradient using the following options:

Fill Style = Linear Gradient
Blend Mode = Normal
Paper Texture & Match Mode = None
Opacity = 100
Sample Merged = NOT checked

Under the "Flood Fill Tool Options" tab, follow same settings in Figure 2.

Figure 2

After applying the "Flood Fill", click on Colors>Colorize (Hue=30  Saturation=80)

You should have the same image as shown in Figure 3

4 Click on Selections>Modify>Contract (Pixels = 5)

Fill the area of the selection using the "Flood Fill" tool floodfill.gif (915 bytes)

Settings I used:

(Go to Flood Fill Options and follow the same settings in Figure 2 but this time, set the "Repeats" value to 0
