Still pretty new to designing sites on Photoshop and I cant figure out how to fade, blend, merge how ever you want to describe it an image to a solid colour. If you look at the examples below, it makes it clear. http://www.imenestrelli.it/ – wood effect fades and blends to a solid brown http://sycfuk.com/ – brick effect fades and blends to a solid white http://www.cyclo.ps/about/ – wood effect fades and blends to a solid brown http://designreviver.com/ – slate concrete effect fades and blends to black
All the above examples show the exact same thing, a background image fading nicely to a solid colour to finish the site off. Is this a trick of the eye or can you do this in photoshop? If so how? Any help would be much appreciated.
