It's pretty easy...

Go to your 'channel' tab. Create a new channel, fill it with a black/white gradient. Then CTRL +click that channel.
Now you go back to the 'layers' tab and click your imagelayer, and copy and paste it.
Hide the first layer, et voila! :)

Maybe there are other ways, but this is basicly the way I do it...

you can use a channel, or make a layer mask. Pretty much the same thing. Click the little shaded circle button in the "layers" palette. black is transparent, white is opaque. YOu can also alt-click on the mask box in the layer and view the mask itself.
I hope this helps.
