I am trying to recreate the effect on the bottom of this photograph, where it reads "Back from the Darkness". I have the text figured out as far as transforming it to match the perspective. But it's the black gradient that's giving me trouble.
I've tried to use a transparent to black gradient, but I keep getting what appears to be white in the middle of the fading. Is there a tutorial for a similar effect that you can direct me to, because I've been trying everything I can find without success. I'm using Photoshop CS5 64-bit.
Edit Here is what I'm trying to do. The original picture has that bit of texture there. This one just appears like the gradient is too smooth, and it looks gray, rather than just black on the picture.
