    Okay - here is a Photoshop 7 step-by-step complete with pix.

    1. Make sure each photo is on a seperate layer. Put the picture you want to fade on top. Click on the quick mask button on the bottom of the layers palette.

    2. Notice the new image in the layer palette next to the image you are going to mask. Also note that the foreground is now white and the background is now black.

    3. Select the gradient tool and choose "foreground to background" from the gradient choice.

    4. Click where you want the dark part of the fade to start and then drag your mouse to where you want the fade in to be complete. If you want a straight fade, hold down the shift key when you drag.

    5. When you are done, click on the small image in the layer palette to continue working with the picture instead of the mask.

    If you need to redo the fade away, in the layer palette, click on the small picture of the image mask and then click on the garbage can at the bottom. It will ask if you want to apply the layer mask before deleting. Click on no and the picture will be as you originally started.

    I don't get it... my fade sucks! I refuse to believe I'm this lame! I can see the edge of the top picture on the other one. it's not a soft fad into the other picture like your example.
