    Gradient to transparent

    restibule

      I just want a simple black to transparent gradient over an image.  When I use the "paper" swatch for one color (as the Adobe directions say), it just shows up as white.  I can make them just fine in both Photoshop and Illustrator, but can't make it work in InDesign.  Nor will the gradients paste properly from the other programs.

       

      Other settings don't create the right effect either--blending effects and the like just make a muddy gray over the image.

       

      Please help, thanks!

       

      I'm using InDesign CS5.
