Hi

Select relevant layer.

Layer > Add layer mask > Reveal All (layer in layers pallete will show an extra square, representing the mask).

Use the gradient tool (black and white gradient) - if more than one fade is required experiment with different blending modes applied to the gradient tool, such as darken or multiply.

To edit layer content again, click on the left square in layers pallete.

Gif will be grainy, and doesn't support alpha transparency.

Jpegs don't support transparency.

PNGs do support alpha transparency. But Microsoft is incompetent so its current browser doesn't render PNGs properly. There is Javascript available for use on your pages which contain PNGs with transparency like this to make IE render them properly - see here. Just bear in mind that those IE users with Javascript disabled will see opaque PNGs.
