Post subject:  Photoshop Layer Mask question

Is there anyone that can tell me why the fade effect using a layer mask in these two tutorials results in absolutely nothing to my image?


I am by no means a graphics guru, but almost every other PS tutorial I have followed resulted in the expected outcome. This one, for some reason, does not. I select the text, flip it, rasterize it, click 'Add layer mask', set the gradient, pull and ... nothing, no change. Any help would be appreciated.

You chose to "reveal all" instead of "hide all" yes? Also, you may have been on a different mode than what they are expecting (normal) in your gradient tool.

Yes, reveal all (Layer -> Layer Mask -> Reveal All). I have no idea what that mode deal is all about.

Edit | Ok there is something else weird about this. In the layer mask, I can marquee a section of the mask, fill it with black and the section disappears. But I cannot gradient fill the marquee. That seems to not make much sense.

Edit 2 | Never give a dev geek a graphics toy, uh tool, and let him play. It is just plain dangerous.
