The Breakdown of Blend Modes
Using Textures With Different Blend Modes
There are many different options when it comes to adding textures to your image in the highlights and shadows. This episode will go through how each one will affect your image using a dark and a light texture, and some tricks to make them interact well with the image beneath. The best way to get used to each is to try them all out, but they are grouped according to similarites. All of the darker blend modes, lighter blend ones, and color and hue are near eachother in the dropdown menu. You can have even more control over the final look by using blend if and lowering your opacity.
