Newbie Layer Mask???

Hello there! I am trying to fade the edges of my image. I found this thread:

Now, don't laugh too hard. I'm just beginning. Um... How do I create a layer mask in Adobe...?

Thank you!! Love, Meg

Step 1. create the mask (per previous post)
Step 2. Do something with it (not as intuitive)

The following tutorials are among my favorites and should help you connect a few more dots. Registration is required on 1st one, but it's very good and worth it. They don't send any annoying e-mails.

Note the last one is here at RP.
