Looks like you just need to use a bigger feather, or bring your selection inside the edges a bit before you feather, invert, and delete.

Lots of ways to do it. You could use an alpha channel with a gradient, a white>transparent gradient on a layer above it, a feathered and inverted selection of a section thats larger than the image.

Sounds like you need photoshop basics. Photoshop comes with a  manual to cover things like layer masks, gradients, etc. You will want to have a read of that before using Photoshop.

Hi yearho, I'm using photoshop 6.0. Perhaps you can try the below simple steps to create faded (actually,its called feathered)lower part of image:

1) In Photoshop, open desired image
2) Select the Rectangular Marquee Tool from toolbar
3) Drag it over your image. Don't select all. Leave some spaces only from the left and bottom of your image.
4) Go to Select menu, select Feather and enter Feather Radius (E.g. 5). On the image, you will see the selection box changing to a more curved one.
5) To see the effect, you need to select Edit, Copy and Paste it on a new blank image(white or other colours).

Hope this helps you : ). Happy learning.
