This may be basic Photoshop 101, but I haven't been able to figure it out (and no, I haven't read the manual...ugh) and figured someone here would know.

I am trying to impose a gradient (say from left to right) on a photo where the gradient goes from 0 percent to 100 percent but the gradient is actually clear. In other words, the photo would fade out from left to right and be perfectly clear on the right side.

I could then overlay that photo onto numerous other backgrounds from time to time and the second photo or background would be fully visisble on the right side and fade out as it goes to the left and into the original photo.

I of course have figured out how to do it by using the eraser and having the photo layered on a clear background, but not simply using the gradient tool.

The layer that says "foreground to background" uses the foreground and background colors on the color picker, not the foreground photo to the background photo.

Any ideas?

I think the best way to do this is to layer one shot above the other then on the top layer click the layer mask (bottom of the layers pallete square with a circle in it I believe) then use the gradiaent tool white to black, which will do what you are asking, no color but rather fade the top photo from one point to another.

O.K.

I should get the Darwin Award for ignorance.

I have been pulling my hair out for three days trying to follow the advice posted here and about 4 other places I posted the same question.

I couldn't get it to work and was beginning to think I was retarded.

I finally dug my manual out. In italics it warns that you cant' use the gradient tool on BMP's.

I have been trying to do this using a couple of bmp's from a work file.....never giving any thought that the file type would matter.

I only report my own ignorance on the off chance that it might keep someone else from following in my footsteps.
