I am trying to blend using a gradient, but when I clip photo to gradient nothing happens. I'm sure I'm missing something obvious as I have done this procedure many times.  Feeling real stupid, but not to ashamed to ask

It's difficult to see, but but looks like your gradient is black to white. The gradient should be black to transparent. Alternatively, why don't you use a layer mask rather than a clipping mask.

Ahh.  Thank you!  I knew it was something simple that I was missing.  I wanted to use the gradient to gradually blend the photo into the paper.  A standard technique I use quite often, but could not figure out why it wasn't working this time.  I appreciate your taking the time to help.
