First, create a new document for your layout. Type your title. Then use the shortcut Ctrl+J (Cmd+J for Mac) to duplicate the layer.
Right-click on the duplicated layer in the Layers palette. Choose Simplify Layer from the drop-down menu that appears. This changes the layer from a text-editable layer into a normal layer.
Make the Gradient tool active in the Tools palette. Click on the Edit button that appears at the top of the screen. When the Gradient Editor window opens, choose the preset gradient named Foreground to Transparent.
