I am trying to use photoshop to make some album artwork. I have two pictures, one will be my background and the other picture is a layer that will go over the background. I want the 2nd picture to be kind of transparent so that you can still see it, but you can see the background aswell. How do I do this?


I also want to be able to adjust how "transparent" it is

theres a bar that says "opacity"
opacity is the same as transparency
turn the opacity percentage down

Just select the layer you want to be transparent and change the opacity or fill of it in the layer selection box

in the layers box thing set the pull down to "screen"
normally its set to "Normal"
or
turn the opacity percentage down



that doesn't change the opacity as such, it just removes all the white from the picture, making it look slightly transparent. changing the opacity is the traditional way.

personally though, i get quite a nice effect by using "extract" (under filters - select smart highlighting) to pick some nice parts of the top layer, and then having this overlay the bottom layer. you can make it look kinda cartoony or like an illustration, both of which i like
