Applying layer mask to just one layer
Hi guys, very new here.
In this screenshot i'm basically trying to make the hands fade, as they are (done using layer mask and gradient tool), but then having the mask apply only to the hands. The aim is to have something in the background and not having the hands transparent to it, and the background image unaffected by the fade.
Here's is an example...The line is on a layer below but still affected by the mask and seen above the hands.
Thank you in advance
