Difference Mode in Gradient tool

To do a funky psychedelic effect or a satin background all you really need is your Gradient tool.

1. Open a document, make a selection, etc.
2. Create a new layer
3. Set Gradient tool mode to Difference, opacity to 50% and the gradient default to opaque/transparent as you see below.

4. Simply start click/dragging around at different angles and lengths until you get the desired effect.
