I stumbled across this the other day and I thought I'd share it with you guys. I love how easy it is and the effect you get.

I used this technique to make this siggy.



I didn't have to cut anything out!

Thanks much! I have used the gradient tool to do a globe, but I haven't used it since!

I'm not sure if this can be done in PSP. I'd have to play around with it and see.

I'm pretty sure it can... since we have all the tools used in that tut (In PSP 9 anyway, I'm not familiar with PSP8).

Here is an outside tutorial on how to use a gradiant mask like in the PS tutorial:

http://graphicssoft.about.com/gi/dynamic/o...sp/duffmask.htm

Now it's not exactly like Rachel's tut but a similar idea.

Here is another one, a bit complicated, but talks about a gradient mask to help the blending...

another mask blending

Edited because it was saying it was used without permission. It's been so long since I posted it IDK what it was referring to,but I deleted it anyway.

The two images now fade from one into the other thanks to the black to white gradient we added to the layer mask.If you're not happy with how your two images have blended together, simply press Ctrl+Z (Win) / Command+Z Mac to undo and try dragging the gradient again.

This is where I am having trouble. When I hold my shift key it doesnt do anything. I tried using my fill and this is what happenend. Its not blending right. I can see the squares where the ocean should be. Even if I lower the opacity of the mask layer it looks a little better,but its still not the way it should be.


what I copy above is the same thing is happening to me..any idea why??

Looks like you're using PSP. This is tutorial written for Photoshop and it also works in Photoshop Elements. I'm not sure how to do it in PSP, as I've never tried.
