graduated selection in Quick-Mask mode

graduated selection in Quick-Mask mode
Hi GIMPers,

I'm trying to create a graduated selection in Quick-Mask mode... it isn't quite the same as what I am used to in PS... I am in Quick-Mask mode and I have the "Blend" tool set to "Mode: Normal", "Shape: Linear" and "Repeat: None" selected in the dropdown menus... I click and drag the blend tool from the point that I would like the graduated selection to start and I let go of it at the point that I want the graduated selection to end, but it is not changing the Quick-Mask selection transparency.

Can anyone tell me what I need to do to accomplish this?

Thanks for any input,

digiday


UPDATE: Nevermind... I remembered I could accomplish the same thing by making a gradient of black to transparent on a top layer and then do an alpha selection of that gradient, and presto, a graduated selection.

Sorry Ofnuts,

Not sure what language's grammar you are using or what you are talking about.

My UPDATE solution at the bottom of my post bypassed Quick-Mask altogether...
