    Creating transparent swooshes?

    queenie9119

      Hi, okay so the best way to explain would be to describe the outcome I want to achieve...

       

      On the same image (photograph), I want it split into a normal 100% 'transparent' image on the top two 3rds, and then the last 3rd to be 'sliced' smoothly across in a swoosh/wave shap.. this section being the slightly 'transparent' part.

       

      Hopefully this makes sense! I have been messing around for ages on indesign, photoshop, illustrator... I know you can erase part of the image in photoshop and then in 'fade eraser' bring some of it back. But I really want a smooth cut line, some thing ideally acheived within illustrator for precision....

       

      Anyway.. any ideas!?

       

      Thanks in advance for any advice
