At first, select an image that you want to work with under a new layer. Duplicate the layer by clicking Ctrl + J. Take ‘move tool’ and press Ctrl + T to transform your photo. If you want to rotate the image, right click on your transform panel and right click ‘flip horizontal.’ Now, take ‘eraser tool’ and remove what you do not need. Try to be precise. It can be done with black background under this layer. Press Ctrl + T to transform your layer once again and enlarge it. Go to image> adjustments> black and white from the above toolbar. Make some necessary adjustments including adjusting the opacity as well. Change the blending modes from ‘normal’ to ‘overlay’ if you want. In this layer, add ‘vector mask.’ Select ‘gradient tool’ and create a soft gradient effect. Now, select layer but not mask. If you want, add a contrast from filter> Sharpen > Un-sharp mask and increase the radius. Once again, if you want try a nice effect with ‘blending options’ from layer style bar. Hold ‘Alt’ and click on a single cursor. That sums up the whole process.
I hope that it will help you and from now on, hopefully you will create more and more transparent effect images like this and be an expert in this field in the future.
