Crossfading two bitmaps in Fireworks 8.

I have 2 bitmaps overlapping each other horizontally.  I want the one on the right to gradually "fade in" over the one on the left. How do I do this in Fireworks Studio 8?
I don't want it to feather on all four sides (although speaking of that, I can't get that to work when I follow the very simple instructions on feathering. ??).
I need to learn how to do this as soon as possible.

Thanks!

John

you have to play around with the opacity of the eraser, e.g. on the edges which overlap the second image, use 100%, then use 50% for the next part, like this you can create a gradual fading/merging effect on the first image.

otherwise give a try to Image Fade Command

use the eraser tool to give the fading effect on the first image where it overlaps the second image.

How do I get a gradual fading effect with the eraser?  I tried fooling with the edge anfd transparency settings, but I still couldn't get a gradual fade.

Thanks,

SheharyaarSaahil,

Image Fade Command is an awesome little tool.  You have no idea how much time this is going to save me.  Thanks!!!!
