Sorry, it's the graphic right at the top.
Here is a Refection in Flash
A text/reflection in Fireworks
Thanks! Does anyone know how to make the graphic?
Follow the directions in the second link Darrel posted. :)
Co7x , follw the fw tut link, except substitute the type layer with your image and follow through on the rest of the process.
Yeah, I understood that part, what I'm wanting to know is how do I make an image fade away into another image, just like the graphic on that website?
In the collage thread, Linda Rathgeber linked to her tutorial at Project7 that you might find useful: Photomontage tutorial.
To fade one image into another, the fading image needs to have a mask. You're probably familiar with physical stencils, which block you from or allow you to affect the surface below the stencil. A mask is a greyscale image that, when attached to another image as a mask, determines how much the second image affects the surface below it. A mask is similar to a stencil, except that it has a full 256 levels how "how much you can affect the surface below" (depending on the shade of grey) instead of just two (which a stencil has).
The most common use for a mask is to determine the transparency of the image it's attached to. For example, if you have a mask which has a gradient from back to white (or is it white to black--I always have to look it up), then your upper image will fade from completely opaque to completely transparent, thus smoothly blending into the image below it.
But...follow Linda's tutorial. It's very nice.
