    Hi, (newbee here ) Can any of you advise me how I can replicate a fading depth of field,using photoshop. I guess I've got to use gausian blur and a gradient...
    Thanks

    Maybe this helps:

    Motion Blur

    I think it's a similar technique.

    There's a filter you can download somewhere. Now, where did I put that link... If I find it, I'll let you know.

    In the meantime, here's an example, and here's the original without the filter. I used it from three different directions, with three different intensities, all of which you can specify in a control panel, along with some other options. Very nifty plug-in!

    Create a duplicate layer, apply gaussian blur, add a layer mask. Select the foreground to transparent gradient tool and with the layer mask selected create a gradient. This will ensure sharp areas of the lower layer show through to the upper blurred layer. Use the brush and erasor on the mask layer to adjust blur on areas that should be sharp or blurred.
