About 10 posts down there is a thread called:
"How do I do this? Thanks!"
That explains it.

Now, if you want exactly the same thing (only the two top corners fading);

- Enlarge canvas about 20% in width, 50% in height, and center your image horizontally while keeping it near the top of the canvas
- Make a rectangular selection (large that your image)
- Convert it to a rounded rectangle ("Select/Rounded rectangle") with a large radius



- Feather the selection... the trick here is that the sides and the bottom of the selection should be far enough from you image that their "feathering" won't overlap the image. This is why you start by enlarging the canvas, because the selection is alswasy clipped to the canvas)
- "Select /Invert" and [delete]
- Get the canvas back to the original size: "Image/Autocrop image"
- Export as PNG

Where in your tutorial do I see Ellipse tool used?

And is [delete] equal to Edit/Clear?

The Ellipse tool isn't used. It is done like this:
- Make a rectangular selection (large that your image)
- Convert it to a rounded rectangle ("Select/Rounded rectangle") with a large radius

Yes, Delete is the same as Edit/Clear

@Teepee
I thought his method was sound.
With the Ellipse tool, it rounds all around the image, not just the corners. The rectangle select tool is easier to line up to the edges of the photo and control/how much roundness just the corners or the all the edges.

Plus, Edit/Clear is a little slower(excessive mouse clicks) than just pushing delete, if your working on project deadlines.

RE: fading corners
Your "before to last" picture of Maryln shows an ellipse.
