    Put your image in two layers, directly on top of each other. Now make the bottome one 50% transparent and then run a mask over the top layer only. Ta da!

    In one layer have a image and set its brightness to look dark, copy and paste in place in a new layer and set its brightness to normal, now when you mast the top layer you see only the bottom dark image, now when you move the mask or animate it, the you could see the normal image through the mask acting as a gleam

    hth!!
