Chapter 18. Mastering the Blending Modes > Understanding Blending Modes

Understanding Blending Modes

Any time two colors overlap, whether on separate layers or when the second color is added with a painting tool, one of two things can happen: The upper color can block (or replace) the lower completely, or the two colors can interact. Opacity and blending modes determine how one color interacts with colors below it.

This chapter explains what blending modes are and what they do. It then looks at how you use blending modes in Photoshop and explores the individual blending modes, one by one.
