Fading Into The Background Effect

The effect I am trying to achieve is taking a person and editing the person to fade into a black background like below:

Click for a larger version

Here is what I have so far without the fading: (I use Photoshop CS2)

She looks like she is only in front of the background but not a part of it.

Thanks to anyone who can help.

Maybe this is an odd question, but here goes:

A few days ago, I made the following user info banner, and, I want to duplicate that colouring on another photo, but for the life of me, I cannot figure out how I did it. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I use Photoshop CS2.

Thank you in advance!

RQ: Rain effect

i was wondering how to make that rain effect:

I've been trying to do it but it always ends up not that good and real looking.
I'm using PhotoShop CS2 and i have Animation Shop if needed.

Yeha I think I've pretty much exahusted by supply to tutorials-to-write by now so you might not see any more tutorials for me for a while.
Anyway, here's just one more tutorial.

PSP8 Problem: Copying & Pasting Layers

I've been using Paint Shop Pro 8 for a while now and it hasn't had this problem before. I can copy layers, merged layers, and paste new images by using keyboard shortcuts. But I can't paste new layers using Ctrl + L

I can do that only if I click the pan tool and right click and choose that option. I can live with that, but it gets tedious after making 40+ icons. 

I don't know what happened, but there are times when I'm working so fast, I type typoes and PSP goes haywire. But that doesn't happen often. And I can fix it.

When I type Ctrl + L, nothing happens. And then my clipboard becomes empty. And now PSP never asks me if I want to clear my clipboard whenever I close it. I clear it everytime. 

Thanks for helping and taking your time to solve my problem. =)
