    I'm using Adobe Photoshop 7. Does anyone know how I can fade a picture? Or how I can fade a picture so that it blends with the background?

    If you want to fade the whole picture you can change the opacity of the layer, or fiddle with blending options like "soft light" but if you want to blend only a certain area, you might try using the eraser tool with a very soft edge.

    Use a gradient overlay and change the gradient's opacity in the parts needed.

    This may well be a dead thread, but, hey, never know who might be helped.

    Based on the question, this sounds like a job for layer mask. From the Layer pull down, select
    Add Layer Mask -> Reveal All.

    Now, any painting you do within this mask while using black will hide the layer while any painting with white will reveal it again. Shades of grey will produce levels of transparency based on the hue of the grey.

    Layer mask are great because pretty much any painting tool is available for hiding or revealing the affected image.

    To achieve the result asked for in the original post, utilize the gradient tool with forground black and background white to achieve a soft blend to invisibility, thus mixing smoothly with the underlying layer. The best part of layer masks is that, while unflattened, they are always editable - enabling you to play around until you achieve the exact effect desired while your original image remains unharmed.

    Have fun!

    Oh, and hello everyone! This is my first post 'round these parts and I'm pleased it could be one attempting to answer a question rather than ask one - and I anticipate I may have many, being painfully new to web design.

    best,
    Christopher
