How do you fade photos?

I really like the effect of fading out the edges of a photo, especially in collages, but I can't figure out how to do it.

Is there a tutorial for it somewhere?

Appreciate it.

Amy

Hi Amy,

you could try selecting and strongly feathering the parts you'd like to fade and decrease their Opacity ....

Amy, I like using a layer mask...fill it with white and paint with black on the mask using a large soft brush on the edges you want to "disappear." You can use this technique with all the pictures in your collage if you want. Hope this helps!

Thanks, I will give it a try.

As an add on to FrannyMae's suggestion, if the fade in is not gradual enough, apply Gaussian Blur to the mask.
