I've never used Fireworks. In Paint Shop, I'd use a gradient - using the background color, if it's a solid color. If the background's not a solid color, I'd try creating a mask with the gradient, although I can't say I've ever done that.

Simplest way would be to have two layers-your background color in the back-image on top-then erase (top layer) using a large brush with a feathered edge. Your background color will show in the areas you erase, and you can vary the gradient with the brush size or feathering.

You can apply a mask to the top layer and use a white-to-black gradient on the mask.
Where the mask is white, the top layer shows; where it is black, the underlying layer shows; grays show partial transparency.

It's that easy in Fireworks? Which version would that be, and how far does that capability go back with Fireworks versions?

Wow...yep...it is that easy (at least in version 8)
Thanks for that!
