Hi there! Could somebody please tell me how to fade out a background like on the image below. I want to do it gradually (towards the edges). Thanks in advance!
Use the transperancy tool available under Effects Flyout menu. Click, drag on the selected object and you get a gradient transperancy. You can edit the intensity & direction of the transperancy.
Just the edges? All 4 edges? Or fading in 1 direction?
If you want to fade from one direction to the other it is simple.
Use the transparency tool and drag..
Provide more info.
I want to fade in one direction but I can't find the transparency tool under the effects menu. Is it not in v. 12? Also, would it still work if I placed a white rectangle over the background image (see below)? I want to fade and lighten the background so that the text can stand out better.
I want to take a sports photo and keep the athlete and fade out the rest... how do I do that?
