[Gimp-user] Gradual opacity and photo stretching

Check out this 2 snipping tool file I made of 2 versions of my CD back cover.
The one on the right, it's hard to read the text especially where the black
boots and dark areas are. The one on the left, I used opacity on the pic to fade
the pic into the background, so the text is more readable.

I wonder how hard it would be to have a combination of the 2. In other words
reduced opacity on the left where the text is and full opacity on the right
where the picture is and a middle transition blending between the 2?

I thought also it would be nice to move the pic to the right so you see more of
the girl and on the left where it's only ocean and land to maybe stretch the pic
to make up for the blank space I'd get on the right if I moved the pic over. I
used the entire pic to fill this back panel, no cropping.
