Gradients with transparency - Adobe Photoshop 7, CS, CS2 & CS3

Hello all, I have an image with two layers (a coin and a clock with same size). I'd like to create a kind of gradient from left to right, which makes the coin disappear and the clock appear. The transparent gradient won't do because it makes the layer disappear by filling it with a color. I would like to make the layer more and more transparent. Any idea.

    Default Gradients with transparency

    Hello all,

    I have an image with two layers (a coin and a clock with same size).
    I'd like to create a kind of gradient from left to right, which makes
    the coin disappear and the clock appear.
    The transparent gradient won't do because it makes the layer disappear by filling it with a color. I would like to make the layer more and more transparent. Any idea. (There's a work around that is very boring: Divide the layer into stripes and copy the layer as often as there are stripes. In every copy delete all stripes which are not needed for the fitting step of transparency.)

    Sorry, my English is a disaster.... :-)

    Just place a mask on the top layer and apply a [black to white] gradient to that.

    There are other ways to acheive this, but this one is most flexible [and easy!].
