How To Fade Two Images Together In Photoshop

In this video, I’m going to show you how you could fade two images together in photoshop to create this effect. So, I have two images here that I want to blend together. This is the first one and this is the second one and I need to bring both of them into the same photoshop file. So to do that, I’m going to go to my second image. I’m just going to grab it here from the layer and I’m going to drag it onto this and let go. And now I could resize it, so they both have the same shape and size. I’m just going to grab and stretch. If you don’t have those guides, you could just press command T, and it’s going to give you those guides and if you hold shift, it’s going to keep it in the same aspect ratio, and it’s not going to let you free transform like this. But in this case, it’s easy to make it the same size, and I’ll just press checkmark, press ok now. I have two of them and my background is locked, so I’m going to double click and unlock that background layer. So now I have layer 1 and layer 2 underneath, on top of each other like this, so I’m going to select one of my layers, my top layer, and I’m going to create a layer mask. Down here, if I click this, I get a layer mask, and this is my layer Mask on top of my top layer. Next I want to pick the gradient tool. This is the gradient tool. Keyboard Shortcut is G. I’m going to select it and I want it to be black and white. So up here, I want black and I want white. And this is the default setting, so make sure you pick the default setting. Now if I click from the left all the way to the right here, and let go, it creates that gradient for me. You see, it’s just blending one to be next. Let me undo that, command z. Let me do it from top and bottom now. Now that’s more of an effect I’m looking for. I want something a lot more pronounced than this. This is too subtle. So I’m going to command z, so to change that, we just want to change the effect of the gradient, so I just click the gradient tool. This is the gradient I want and right now, it’s very subtle. So I could change that by grabbing this and making most of the black, and just a little bit of white. Let’s see what that does. Now if I go from top to the bottom, now it’s too much. I barely see the water, so I could undo that and come from top so somewhere in the middle here and that’s a lot more of the effect I’m looking for. I’m going to command z again. Let me just make the gradient even less. Now you see the difference between the black and the white is less. I’ll bring this over. Let’s see what that does, press ok. Now the effect is a lot more interesting. It’s not as transparent. Let me undo that and bring it down even more. I’ll bring it to here. Let me bring it down all the way here. Now it’s taken away the sun. I want to see a little bit of the sun, so I’ll let go somewhere over here. Now you could experiment with your picture. Let me go from left to right for example. Let me go further. So you could see the type of different things you could do. You could really go at any angle and get a different effect, any which way you go, so but this is the fact that I was going for. So again, you could go up here and make it more or less gradual. And play around with the Gradient to get at different fade effect. I hope this video helped you.
