Apply a gradient to an image?
Hi,

Brand new to Gimp... about 2 hours total. Smile

I have an image I am trying to create that I want to fade from right to left. In other words, I want the right side of the image to be full clarity, color, etc., and have it generally fade to almost gone by the time it gets to the left edge. Think of it as a gradient for an image.

Any way to do that with Gimp?

I found a blur tool. If I cannot do this with some kind of gradient tool, is there a "fade" tool?

I am a real noobie... if there is a tutorial on this topic, I cannot find it.

Thanks in advance,

Logger

(First time I linked an image in a gimp forum... hope it works).

ofnuts, this was exactly the help I needed. Thanks! I did several iterations of this and learned a lot. I got it to work with the whited out area being transparent... I changed the deflections, gradient types, etc. You turned it into a very meaningful tutorial! I really appreciate the help. I hope I can help others out some time!
