ive read a few tutorials for grad filters in PS but tbh the best results are buy using the filters themselfs, ive got a few and the holder just need to get out more with them :)

Probably a reasonable starting kit :

ALthough remember to buy the kit to fit your lense.

soft, what you can do is place a ND filter in part way between the transition to harden it.

Cheers Ridg, going to order a ND2 and ND4 by Kood on Friday. Only £10 a piece so should serve their purpose. From an eBay shop who are based in Rochester which is handy to know if you need stuff desperately. They're called Crooked Imaging and have a website too and come recommended on Talk Photography.

I inherited a cokin a-system (a system = amateur, smaller, probably not made now, P system = professional, larger) set from my dad. It's a smaller system but fits the 49mm thread on my 50mm prime lens. Haven't got any grad filters for it yet.
London Camera Exchange near my work have a big box of secondhand filters, so might pick some up for pennies.

I have used the grad filter in ACR a number of times, and it's ok, though I can't seem to get it to do black grad filter very well, just colours.
