How can I make an image or layer transparent at the outer edge? I woul
like to take a pictures of my friends, put them on top of a backgroun
and have their pictures fade at the edges or transparent...but I nee
to make it uniform. I would like the transparency go from 100 in th
middle to around 30 at the edge w/o seeing an area where it drop
dramatically. Am I making sense? I know what I'm trying to describe
I just don't know if I'm getting it out in words. I would hav
searched for the answer, but I don't really know how to string th
search.

Any help is appreciated.

I guess I'm trying to make a vignette. I found another thread about i
and would like to be able to create it w/o having to remove an oval ou
of a rectangle then soften the edge. My backgrounds have texture so i
would look weird changing the rectangle color to match the background
