I can tell you that to make your font transparent you need to make sure that your text is in a different layer, click on layers, then layer properties, and then at the bottom of the pop up there will be a slider to adjust your opacity.
I haven't figured out how or even if you can blur the edges of a photo (I don't think you can), but if you click on Effects, then photo, you can soften and adjust how much you soften.
Hope it helps a little bit anyway!
THANK YOU! I actually found that, but then when I went to make the text transparent, it looked like it was actually making my picture transparent, and I couldn't get it to do just my text. What did i do wrong??
