Image Editing Help - Two diagonal images "progressing" into each other.
Call me an image editing noob, but I have absolutely no idea how to do this (and I've searched Google).
What I want is something similar to the following:
- where the two images "fade" or progress into each other close to the middle.
Is there any way to do this in Gimp, or some other image-editing software? (I prefer to use Gimp, but I can get access to Photoshop).
Any help appreciated.

On the canvas put the two images together with one of the images selected click the gradient tool in the left-hand tools box make sure the colours are set to black and white, now go to the top and click the gradient box you should see white into transparent, click that and draw your gradient across one image.
Then slide the other image across until the canvas behind is hidden.

Yeah, make sure you create a Layer Mask first as KillerWolf suggested. Do that by clicking on the third button from the left of the New Layer button, at the bottom right of the screen.
(Also, I always get black & white mixed up in masks -- but if the white gradient doesn't work, try black)

OK, that worked. Thanks.

Or do it an incredibly easier way and just Erase diagonally away half of one layer with a soft large brush
