  1. Hi Marisa,

    Thank you for creating and posting such amazing content on your website and youtube channels. I learned a great deal from them and they have helped me progress tremendously! One quick follow-up question – how did you create the change in background image / opacity upon scroll effect that you have on the following page ?


    1. Hi Daniel,

      So glad you enjoy the content here 🙂

      In regards to your questions, it’s super easy. If you follow my Gradient Image Overlay Tutorial, simply reduce opacity on either the top or bottom gradient to “0” so that only part of the background has color so that it fades into total transparency.

      Hope this helps!
