Hello,

I have a 1x2 collage with 1 layer as the backround. I want to use the second layer to show some images in a smaller box on top of the first layer. Is it possible to soften the edges of only the second layer, to have it blend a bit?

Any help would be apreciated.

Michael

    Yes, this is commonly done. What you do is adjust the z-position of the 2nd layer so that it is in front of the 1st layer. Adjust the Scale on the 2nd layer to adjust the size to what you want.

    You can then use the Drop Shadow effect to soften the edges and give it a softened frame like a real screen would hanging in front.

    You can also try using the Gaussian Blur effect to soften the whole image....one my personal favorites:)
