I have a photoshop problem. I created a banner for a website and added a picture on the top right. They are two layers. See the attachment 1.
Now what I want is that the left border of the picture nicely fades over into the blue color of the banner. The problem is that the blue background is not one color but different blue colors. I don't know how I can smoothen the border.
What I tried is using the gradient tool. The only thing I could do with it can be seen in attachment 2.
Can anybody explain to me how to make the border smooth? Please explain thouroghly, I'm a Photoshop dummy .
Thanks in advance
