Graduated layer mask description.
This is a short descriptionon how to use Graduated Layer masks in compiling a collage.
Started with background image.
Pasted image of Chalet into layer above. I wanted to fade from one into the other, so I used a Graduated Mask to accomplish the transition (I also moved the 2nd image to the right first, because I didn't need to use it all).
To make a Gradient Mask
I now copied 2 new pictures into 2 new layers, and resized and moved them to compose things as I wished. Then I selected each in turn, and put a black border round by using Edit > Stroke.
New layer, and I put in a text layer with white text.
Copied text to a new layer, and changed text colour to red. (Thought I'd do another Graduated Mask to fade text from white to red).
Applied Graduated layer mask to the red text layer using same method as described above.
Hope this explains things, if there's any point that needs clarifying, let me know.
(I haven't put see through white layer that fades like on the example you sent me, because it wouldn't have shown on the pictures I used, but simply create a blank white layer, apply a mask as described above, then reduce layer opacity to get effect you want).
Thank you Gary , I just printed out the tutorial and will be using it today when I get back from a wedding . It looks just the way I wish it to be. I do like the white layer on top with opacity lowered on the example. Neb
