Transparent overlay

Hey gang,
Total beginner question: I have two images, one a photo and one a simple line drawing (black ink on a white background.)

How do I make the line drawing into a transparent overlay layer with only the lines showing such that I can place the drawing over the photo and not see any white? Anyone?

Ooops, never mind. Figgered it out on my own. (See entry entitled "enigma" in the current contest about the bottle on the beach.)

Thanks news1st

In case others want to know how to do it. here's the text version:

To show only blacks or dark colors from an image on the layer below it, set the blending mode to Darken or Multiple.

To show only whites or light colors from an image on the layer below it, set the blending mode to Lighten or Screen.

You can also experiment with the sliders in the Layer Style under Blending Options.
