Blending Edges

I've made a picture containing a dozen different pics on it. Now I want to know how I can blend the pics on the edges, or blend them into each other. Does anyone know how to do this. I have Photoshop 7. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

Dwayne

Re: Blending Edges

not 100% sure what your trying to achieve but,

maybe go around the edges using the eraser tool, with a soft brush, with a transperance of say 30%
this may work, or you could select around the image with the selection changed to have a 5 pixel shading thingy [located up the top - near where you can change the selection type]

hope that made sense

if not go here (go here anyway)

Re: Blending Edges

Basically I have 12 pics that I've overlaped around the edges. Pics are all different sizes. Like a big Collage (excuse the spelling) So I really just wanna remove the edges of the overlaying pics.

Thanks for the link I'll check it out.

Re: Blending Edges

yeah, like pete said, the eraser is the way to go; you get the most control with that. one with feathered edges

Re: Blending Edges

Layer masking is the best way to do it. Then use the gradient tool to set foreground to background and it will erase the top most image through the gradient.

Re: Blending Edges

Add a layer mask to the layer you want to fade out, then use the gradient tool to blend between that layer and the layers beneth. this way you can add and subtract from the layer, without loosing the image altogether as you do with erasing. Search under 'using layer masks' in the help menu. this gives the most 'professional' look!

Re: Blending Edges

Are each of the pix on a separate layer? If so you could lasso around each image and feather it about 15 pixels copy and paste each selected feathered image on separate layers in a new file, arrange the composition again, save it, then flatten layers to see how it would look, undo flatten, and then keep going till you're happy with it. I've got Photoshop 6, but 7 can't be that different.
