Gradient Blending

Thursday, October 28, 2010

The "Gradient Tool" in Adobe Photoshop can be used as a quick way to blend two pictures together.

1. Open 2 pictures in Adobe Photoshop
2. Use the "Move Tool" to drag & drop 1 picture onto the other
3. Click on the "Layer Mask" icon at the bottom of the Layers Panel
4. Using the "Gradient Tool" draw a vertical line in the center of the picture

The smooth transition between these two photos is created when the "Gradient Tool" is used on the "Layer Mask"

This can also be used for horizontal as well as vertical pictures
