I'm trying to gradually blend 2 images at the center of the canvas, using Corel PaintShop Pro. I wanted to recreate something like the first part of this video.
1 and 2 are the images, and the black area is the area where I want to blend both images.
I have tried with masks, layers, opacity, and nothing works as I need to. The closest I got was using a layer and delete portions of the image with the eraser tool and playing with the opacity parameter, but it doesn't look natural, or gradual.
With one mask layer, the best I could achieve was this:
Any ideas of how I can achieve such effect?
