Tip #80, To make a soft edge when you crop something, use the Marquee tools and adjust the edge by setting Feather in the options bar to a number that you find pleasing. I start at 15px, and see how I like that. This will also round the corners of the area. If you want to have a picture with an edge that fades into nothing, this is how to do it. Make your selection on the photo you want to add to your layout. Adjust the Feather to 15px. Move the selected area to your layout. If you don’t like it, use the History to remove that and try again with a different Feather setting.
