I would like to implement an foto in illustrator. The foto should go transparant on the egdes.
But I cannot find the right tool to realise the transparancy.Can you help?Inga
You could try Effect > Stylize > Feather...
you can also create a "template" for such kind of images:
1. Create a rectangle and fill it by gradient like this:
(b-w-w-b, all the stoppers are 100% opacity).
2. Duplicate it, rotate (or change the gradient direction), adjust the size. Change gradient to something like this:
(100%-0%-0%-100%, all the stoppers are black)
3. Group these rectangles (Ctrl/Cmd+G)
This group is your template. You can copy it and use as many times as you need, adjusting to images sizes etc.
4. Put the group above the image, align and adjust the sizes. Open Transparency panel (click Opacity in Control Panel or Properties panel, or go to Window > Trancparency) and click Make Mask button:
5. Enjoy! 🙂
