Anyone know of a good Photoshop discussion board? I can't figure out how to do one of those blends (fades?) where a photo blends into the white background in one direction, left to right.

jk,

If you're talking about Photoshop as a product, I'm not too familiar with it, but most photo editors have an "effects" tab which should include a "fade out" selection. If you don't have a photo editor, you will need one to do this effect. You could always load the file to the web and see if someone will help you out. It only takes a moment to do.

Create a white layer under your photo...add a layer mask to the photo layer (bottom left of the layer palette)... select linear gradient tool and have a play around.

Its not all that hard. The tow links below will give you some advanced options. the easy way is as follows.

- Create a new layer on top of your picturelayes
- Set white as your foreground color (or an other color if thats your backgroundcolor)
- Select the gradient tool and select the gradient, that goes from forgroundcoloer to trasparant
- "draw" the gradientline from left to write

Ummm.... the forum you're in is "Website Graphics Design & Usage"
It is a graphics forum. ;)

As for fading a photo to transparent/white... maccas suggests the same technique I'd use:
In your layers palette, double click on your photo layer and name it "photo" (or something like that)...
Create a new, white, background layer...
Add a layer mask to the "photo" layer...
Fill the mask with a black-to-white gradient, in whichever direction you'd like the photo to fade into...

-or- (if you don't want to mess with masks or gradients)

Duplicate your photo layer. (so you don't lose any data in the following steps)..
Turn off visibility for one of the photo layers...
Create a white background layer...
Set the eraser tool to a large diameter & 0% hardness...
While holding down the "shift" key (to ensure a straight vertical line), drag the eraser down the photo wherever you want the fade to be...
(If that fade is too sharp, set the eraser to 50% opacity for the first pass, then 100% opacity for the second pass... make the second erase a little farther over than the first)

That's what I used to do before I learned how to use masks. ;)

Bufferzone's suggestion would also work great if you don't want to mess with masks or eraser settings... :)

>>Which technique did you use?<<

Actually, I did several graphics, and used both "layers" and the "large eraser" methods.

They both work great.

Thanks!

In addition to the current forum, Adobe has an excellent Photoshop forum at [adobe.com...] --
