Sorry, I assumed you knew this. Anytime you use a gradient on a LAYER MASK, the foreground/background color will always be black and white! There are a few occasions that you might use gray.Thanks for the help. May i know what the foreground color you use when you are using the gradient tool (Foreground to transparent) ?
Based on what you have posted above, it looks pretty good.Junqi Ng said:Am i doing the correct way its seems like your second layer and mine totally different.
mine look something like this:
okay so i have de-select before adding a layer mask.The thought occurred to me that you may not have turned off your selection (Cmd/Cntrl + D) before you added the layer mask. Be sure and turn off the selection before adding the layer mask!!!!
okay. so i now change both foreground to black color and un-check the reverse button.OK, you have the layer mask correct, but your not using black as your foreground color on the Gradient Tool.
Red Arrows: Notice here that your Foreground color is white and your gradient is yellow................these should both be black!
Blue Arrow: Uncheck the reverse box.
