The picture of the bridge and dome fade out on the left to white, very smoothly.
I would really like to know how this is achieved - can it be done on paint shop pro or photoshop? I don't even know the correct term for the effect - if I did it would help me search for it.
thanks for any advice.
In Corel PP, there's a glass icon in the toolbar on the right and, when clicked, it gives you an adjustable sliding bar to set exactly where the transparency starts and ends, as well as how quickly the fade in/out happens.
It's been a while since I've used Photoshop, or I could probably tell you how to do it in that program as well.
1.) Use the gradient fill tool to run a white to transparent fill in a mask layer. I did this once, and I don't remember exactly how... but it gets you the effect you want without having to erase part of the image.
2.) Put the photo in one layer, and put a solid white layer underneath it. Take a great big fuzzy-edged eraser (as suggested above), and erase the part of the image you want gone... Voila! It appears to fade to white. (Hold down the shift key while dragging the eraser to force it to run along a perfectly vertical, horizontal or 45 degree line.)
1. Open an image.
2. Go to Layer -> Duplicate Layer ->OK
3. On left palette select gradient tool
4. On top left you will have Gradient Tool properties. . Select "Foreground to transparent gradient". "Select linear gradient" if it is not default.
5. Make sure that your foreground color is set to the color to which you wish it to fade. In this case it is white.
6. Select a point on your image, click, hold and drag your mouse in the direction OPOSITE to which it should fade. In this case it would be from the left to the right.
You do not have to drag all the way though the image. The farther you drag the smoother transparency will be. If you're unsatisfied with the result, in the History Palette click on "Duplicate Layer" to return to the pervious state and drag your mouse over the image again. Repeat until desired outcome is achieved.
1.pick the lasoo tool and feather it to about 20-30 pixels(experiment) and draw a circle around the area you want gone.
2.Then press delete.
3.Try it a few times with a different amounts of feathering and different shapes with lasoo tool. Thats it.
