[Gimp-user] 8 and 1 bit images

Every shade of grey in between allows
slightly less of the satellite background image to show through. This
results in the satellite imagery to blend with the standard scenery
and not have a hard line along the edge. Hope I have explained
properly. Like the attached blend mask (taken from a video tutorial).
Note the 'shading'
If there is a better method to produce a grey scale between the white
and the black please advise.

As mentioned before it works exactly the same with a Gimp layer mask. Of course
Gimp has various options, the standard is 'white' 100% transparency. Painting in
it with black or various greys permits a layer under to show.

The only thing I suggest looking into when making your images, is possibly using
a Gaussian blur which will create those blurred edges that create the blend.
