Combining a refined mask with a gradient: Learn Photoshop Compositing: Ten-Minute Techniques

Sean Duggan shows how to combine the soft and gradual transition of a gradient layer mask with the hard-edged qualities of a more precise mask. He demonstrates how the gradient tool, in normal mode, will remove any previous hard-edged mask.
