Photoshop Top 40 Countdown with Deke McClelland: #11 – Opacity Mode and Blend Modes

Published by | Tuesday, February 2nd, 2010

Changing opacity is like mixing a cocktail with, say, 30% active layer and 70% all layers below. Assigning a blend mode is like shining a light or casting a shadow: The active layer infuses those behind it with life. In this week’s Photoshop Top 40 Countdown, Deke shows how to mix and blend layer opacities for best results.

P.S. If you want to see all of the Photoshop Top 40 Countdown tutorials in one place (and maybe want to bookmark some features), they are now compiled in the Online Training Library®!
