Tutorial to reduce opacity in selection

Recommended Posts

Newbie looking for tutorial to reduce opacity of selection area. I'm looking to create something similar to the white area behind the text in the attached image. Thank you.

Add a new layer, draw whatever, and decrease the opacity of the layer (open the layer properties window by double-clicking on it in the layer window)

Sorry for all the bother. After drawing a rectangle on the new layer with the selection tool and bringing up the layer property dialog box and adjusting the opacity slider bar it doesn't change anything at all. I just don't see where my problem is.

You have to use the rectangle tool ( :RectangleTool: ), not the rectangle selection tool ( :Replace: ).
