How to Create a Cartoon Rainbow in Photoshop

Usually when the sun is shining and it is raining at the same time, you can see a rainbow. The rainbow is a huge arch of colours in the sky. The number of rainbow colors is seven. These seven colors are: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.

Create a new PSD file, size 1750x230 px. Create a new layer called Rainbow and fill it with color white.

Add a Gradient Overlay to the Rainbow layer.

We have to add the seven rainbow colors in equal parts like shown in the preview. The colors are violet(#ea3bec), indigo(#8737ff), blue(#008aff), green(#48ff00), yellow(#fff600), orange(#ff9600) and red(#ff3c00).

Right click on the Rainbow layer and choose Conver to Smart Object.

We will create a new PSD document called "Cartoon Rainbow". Create the Background Sky layer and fill it with color #22d8e8 .

Duplicate the Rainbow layer in this new PSD file.

Go to Edit > Transform > Warp and choose Arch with Bend 50.
