first, read the earlier thread on adding the alpha channel to the

then use the right click menu in the layers dialog and add a mask to the
photograph layer

then use the blend tool to add a gradient.  you can adjust where the
gradient colors start and end in the gradient editor (right click there
also to find options for this)

the strength of the gradient you are painting can be adjusted in the
blend tool options.

probably, you will need to add an all black or all white layer under the
photograph layer.  (or maybe a duplicate of the photograph instead)
