Hello, I am designing a CD cover where I need to have one image dissolve into another. I am on Photoshop 7.0. Basically I want the transperancy to act like a gradient with one side of the image at 100% and the other at 0%. Can someone please advise/point me to a tutorial for this? Thanks.
On this subject...has anyone worked out a quick way to make an editable gradient mask for a layer? By that I mean sometimes you need to fine-tune the matte's grad (like you would a gradient layer) and it's opacity to make it look just right cutting out the image..would be useful. Is there a way?
Next best thing I can think of is by applying the original mask (a solid square matte cutting out a box for instance) and then selecting transparency of a grad I've overlaid and applying that as the new mask to the 'box' layer and then unlink it and free transform the matte until it's just right.
Not ideal though is it!
Any ideas muchly appreciated.
