    Excellent tutorial James, fading is sometime required to add the text on image so this will really help us a lot.

      Thanks Daisy. I find fading an important part of design. I use it a lot.

      The intent of this tutorial was to show new users of Photoshop and new designer how to fade an image, give them another tool to add to their photoshop toolbox, and what fading can be used for…

    Hi James,

    I’m a PS newbie, and I’m stuck on this. I followed your directions word for word, but it seems I have a setting of somesort that is not allowing me to ge the result I should be getting. When I apply the gredient, what it does is kind of fade the entire image regardless of where I try to stop the line to apply the gradient. The entire image just, changes brightness but no gradient truly takes place. What could this be??? Please help, I’ve been struggling with this for days.

    Thanks.

      Hey Jay, thanks for trying out the gradient tutorial. I am not sure what might be causing this. Would it be possible to post some print screens of your photoshop work area and post them on flickr or somewhere I can see them, then post a comment with a link. What I am looking for is images of your settings, such as showing your settings for the gradients and property settings?

      As for knowing whats happening, I am not sure. I will work through the tutorial and see what I might left out or what property settings you might have to cause this…Hopefully I can have answer for you very soon..

      There is usually a gradient setting. You need go into your gradient and set it the way you want to fade the image. If you haven’t found the right setting let me know…
