are there any good photoshop tutorials on the web that someone can point me to?
thanks
what i'm trying to do is use a gradient. i want one side of the gradient to be one color, then the other side to be clear with no color and/or have an image on that other side kinda like the example image that is provided below.
if anyone knows how to do that or if you know of a tutorial that can explain that, then that would be great.
i am using photoshop 7.0.
thanks

There are two ways to do this:

1) Make your gradient just one solid colour. On one end, set the opacity to 0%. Fill a layer with that gradient and you'll get what you want

2) Fill a layer 100% with the fill colour. Make a mask on that layer that is a gradient black to white. That'll also get you what you want.

When in the gradient dialog, click one of the markers on the top side of the gradient. The Opacity field will become active, and you can set it there.

ok, i've created the layer mask on one layer, now do i set that masked layer with a fill to 0%, then go to the gradients dialog box and select forground to transparent? or how would i do this?
do i create this gradient on the same layer as the mask layer or create it on a different layer?

It's hard to see, but if you look closely, you'll see a black box around either the layer or the mask - whichever you've got selected. When you've got the mask selected, apply your gradient.

Once again, check Google for Photoshop gradient tutorials - you'll be able to find something useful.
