    Crossfading Images

    Coxdabd
      Hello there,

      I'm trying to accomplish the effect wherein the image at the top crossfades into the image at the bottom. I've uploaded an example of the effect I want to accomplish - I've left a white line between the two images to indicate the items to be crossfaded. The example can be viewed by clicking here: http://i116.photobucket.com/albums/o20/coxdabd/Example.jpg

      All the best and many thanks in advance,

      Kristopher (UK).

          I generally think of 'crossfade' as a dynamic thing - open image 1, start
          fading it, see image 2 when the fade is done. If that's what you mean,
          then Flash is probably your best bet.

          If you want a single image, static, no motion, which consists of two or
          more images with less or more transparency in various parts, this
          tutorial might help:

            If I understand you correctly...
            Drag out a rectangle over the area you want to fade and fill it with a white
            (top) black (bottom) linear fill. Select your image and the rectangle >
            Modify > Mask > Group as Mask. That should fade it into the pink background
            colour.
