I don't know if the question's wording is correct. Basically, I have something like this:
As you can see, blue is fading into white. The blue and white are both merged in one layer. I want to take out the white, leaving a transparent background, so that blue can fade into any background color. Obviously just selecting the white pixels and deleting them won't do the trick, because the pixels in between would either be deleted as well, destroying the fade out effect, or kept, and it would still fade to white until another solid color appeared.
So is there any way to achieve this?
