I have tried probably ten times to do the tutorial that Rachel posted for blending two photos using a gradient. I want to be able to make really smooth and flawless looking siggies like the rest of you guys do. But mine always comes out looking like this:

I don't know if you can see it very well here, but it is really obvious when I open it on my computer. There are two very distinct vertical lines on each side of the gradient. I have been messing around with the gradient settings forever, changing it to "dissolve," getting rid of the "dither," etc., but I don't know what I am doing and so it is just hit or miss. In any case, no matter what I click on it still doesn't come out looking smooth.

Does anyone know how to fix this? Do I need to change my settings somehow? Or, for that matter, does anyone know what "gradient" and "dither" actually mean? Maybe it would help if I knew...

Please help!

Thank you to the SSMC makers for my beautiful siggies!
