I hope this is a fairly simple question, but for the life of me I can't figure it out right now.
I have created a new image, with a transparent background. On this transparent image I have some text (coloured white with black border for what is its worth!) which is in layer one, and then I've duplicated this text (in layer two) and flipped it upside down.
What I'd now like to do is add a transparent gradient to the flipped text to fade it out into nothing.
I added a layer mask to the flipped text layer and then tried to add a gradient to the text, but it doesn't add any transparency, it just covers the text in a white to black gradient.
When I tried doing this on some text before on a different image it worked absolutely fine, the only difference was that I didn't use a transparent background. This time I cannot get it to work with the text being on a transparent background.
Annoyingly I managed to get it to work fine using a copy Paint Shop Pro in the office at work, so I'm thinking there must be a way with the mighty Photoshop?
I've uploaded the .psd file I've been working on if that helps anyone help me! lol
Really appreciate some advice if anyone doesn't mind helping a beginner :-)
Thanks in advance.
