The Photoshop Blend Modes offer the artist a great deal of creative and practical possibilities. At first glance they can seem a little overwhelming and confusing. But if you approach them by their groupings and understand what each group does they begin to make more sense. This podcast explores the historical origins of the blend modes and how they have evolved in Photoshop. We then explore some of the uses of blend modes to create borders, add noise, enhance a portrait, burn and dodge, remove dust and apply adjustment layers. In part two of blend modes we will explore some more creative effects.
