Gradient tool


Recommended Posts

I'm new to Paintdotnet and I can't seem to get the gradient tool to work the way I want (to blend two photos, left to right). I have followed the tutorials (transparency mode, etc) and yet, when I click and drag, the area bleaches out! What am I doing wrong?

Also, how can you blend just the edges of, say, an element that was brought into an image (someone's eyeball in the place of a sun as in a photo of a sunset)?

Thanks,

Warren Warsaw

the area bleaches out! ---- Remember to click :AlphaChannel: icon when you are using :GradientTool:

blend just the edges ---- Use Feather plug-in would be easiest

I am 75% sure that your problem will be solved with this screenshot:

A good tool other than transparency mode is the Alpha Mask. It's the type of thing that you would want to experiment with before asking questions (because it's hard to explain properly).
