It seems like you've got a pretty good start on doing it yourself. Therefore, I offer only this advice: Work in layers, take advantage of the Alpha Channel, get familiar with the gradient tool and the layer mask.

Re: Seeking Graphic Artist for F16 Wallpaper Edit

thanks for the reply Dan. Ill get to googling this Alpha Channel right away. Prolly wont get to far as i have never been good with graphics for some reason. I get hyper focused on one thing and spend a week trying to accomplish what should only take 5 mins. You gave me a lil boost of confidence tho, so im gonna try it for a few and see what happens.

Aslo id like to say your stickies are hallarious and ive been wanting to make a sig quoting your comments.

One of my fav's is definatly.

There are well over one-hundred-thousand members on this forum, and precious few of us. Therefore, every once in a while, if required, we will clear the barroom with a shotgun first, then take names and excuses later!

It really is easier than it looks. Just load it into the GIMP, and then have a read through this thread:
