ok after much experiment i finally found the answer to getting feathered "pointed" lines. you have to merge down your layers, select the oval marquee tool.,make the feather a max of 7 pixels or you get an error, put marquee at end of line, press delete, and you have a pointed "feathered " line end. derek

The tutorial is right. It sounds like you were trying to move a selected part of a semi-transparent layer or image.

What are you merging down? You only need the marquee to affect 1 layer, no?

You make a selection using the elipse marquee - select>feather - movethe marquee to the correct position (for this 'move' you need to ensure you have the selection/marquee tool selected NOT the cursor arrow) - invert and delete.

That's not correct Derek - you're doing something wrong my friend.

PS: How many forums do you use? I see your sign on around a lot !

thanks. im going to have to make the pointed line my last move because i had to merge down for it to work. im going to have to do that because i tried a million times the tutorial method and i get an error when i follow the tutorial exactly. also, ya i use 3 forums. 2 web design forums, and one photoshop forum, i figure that way, i have a good chance of getting an answer to my questions, because i have so many. derek

If you want me to post a picture tutorial I can... it's not a difficult technique but once you learn masking it opens up a world of crazy techniques.

that would be awesome if you could post a picture tutorial. i did learn some about using the mask feature to draw out selections with the brush tool, and i learned how to create shines with the pen tool, and dodge and burn, and using gradients. so im coming along . here is the awesome website i found on logo tutorials which skills really apply to anything in photoshop.
