I am having troubles duplicating this image. As you can see ( if I link to it correctly) this little green box (there are three across the top "service specials" for example) is lighter in the middle and darker on the top and bottom. I am tryng to make a new one but am struggling as 'gradient' only seems to go from 'dark to light' but not 'dark to light to dark again'
Any help please? And please keep it realy simple or give directions in detail.

When you have the Gradient Tool selected, look at the Options bar at the top of your screen. There's a group of 5 buttons that will produce different types of gradients.
Experiment with those, and experiment with your start and stop points when you click and drag with the gradient tool in your document area.
