i'm having difficulty getting silver or gold colour look on a shape. Can anyone tell me how to get this effects in illustrator or perhaps photoshop as well?
need to use the silver colour to do an image mockup of a product. Could you please tell me how to use any filter or gradient to get the effects?
need to get some effects like the gold or silver on a beer bottle label where it will reflects the colour printed on it.
Thank you... i have been trying for 2 days and the outcome was a shame...

I think you might need texture effects rather than just colour.
I've just very roughly copied a Golfinger-type model by using a texture like orange peel, colouring it gold-yellow, then applying the craquelure filter effect.
Hope this helps

Go to the Adobe Exchange and do a search on Gold. You'll find a boatload of styles and actions that create gold effects that have been uploaded by users.

Photoshop ships with some pre-made (preset) metallic gradations. Study them
and adjust to suit.

Do a layer style that has a goldish color fill, say 21/37/71/1, add a gradient using the 'copper' gradient preset set to 'reflected' - set the blending mode of the gradient to luminosity and reduce the opacity to around 15%.
or just download a layerstlye that does this for you.

Don't forget the satin layer effect.
