Look no further than our tutorial on using Angular Gradient and Color Dodge blending to achieve a stunning, fluorescent-like effect. In this post, we'll walk you through the steps necessary to create a professional-grade light effect that's sure to impress.

First, open up a new Photoshop document and create a new layer. Select the Gradient tool and choose the Angular Gradient option. From there, select the colors you want to use in your gradient, ensuring that they complement each other well. In our example, we used a range of blues, purples, and pinks to create a dynamic, multicolored effect.

Once you've created your gradient, switch to the Color Dodge blending mode. This will allow your colors to really pop and create that fluorescent-like glow you're looking for. From there, adjust the opacity of your layer as necessary to achieve the desired effect. You may also want to experiment with different colors and blending modes to achieve the exact look you're after.

In conclusion, using Angular Gradient and Color Dodge blending in Photoshop is a powerful way to create a beautiful and dynamic light effect in your designs.
