I have a series of photos that I'd like to create the effect of them fading to white on the bottom edge in gimp.
I have this working very nicely in CSS already with linear-gradient(to bottom, rgba(255,255,255,0) 20%,rgba(255,255,255,1) 100%).
When I try to create a similar effect in GIMP, I end up with a gradient that is far too harsh - nowhere near as smooth/subtle as the CSS effect.
- load photo
- create new white background layer
- select photo layer
- add layer mask
- set bg/fg colour to white/black
- draw gradient
What am I doing wrong?

Thanks, I can't tell you how much time I've lost to this today!
