Drawing a Rainbow
Can anyone lead me to a simple method of drawing a rainbow? I did it some months back but cannot remember how. I found a couple of tutorials but I could not get them to work properly. Any help appreciated.
Thanks.

As well as above advice
RobA's pathblend script

Might give you a bit more control over position.

RE: Drawing a Rainbow
yet another cool way you can make a rainbow(on image) is with the rainbow radial hoop(if you have it)

1. new transparent layer
2. Pick blend/gradient "Scroll down list toward the bottom until you find "Radial Rainbow Hoop"
- Check the settings in the picture.
3. Then just erase the bottom half of the circle.
4. Filter > Blur > Guassian Blur > whatever setting looks best to you
5. Adjust the layer opacity to make it semi-transparent.

In my pic, the left-most rainbow is what it looks like when you first make it(only a full circle)
-also notice the full circle in the middle layer, thats my original gradient
