    Can anyone tell me how to do an effect in PS, where a transparent bar goes over an image and lightens it? I've attached an example because I know my description is pretty bad.

    Here is the original link to cover with this effect

    and below is the effect I'm talking about circled in red.

    Thanks!

    Simplest way would probably to make a shape layer over the image, then lower the opacity of the shape image.
