Advanced Blending is the second installment in Deke McClelland's series on making photorealistic compositions in Photoshop. The course explores blending options and shows how to use them to create sophisticated effects and seamless compositions, often without masking. Beginning with the basics of blending layered images, the course sheds light on the formulas behind the Photoshop blend modes and shows how to comp scanned line art, create double-exposure effects, correct skin tones, and work with the luminance sliders.
With any luck, you now have a firm grasp on how blending works in Photoshop. And in particular, you have a sense for what blending option to use when, as oppose to randomly selecting hard mix and thinking what, why would I use that? Now you know. And please remember that this course is part of a larger and ever expanding series. It all starts with my essentials course, "Photoshop Masking & Compositing Fundamentals". From there, you can branch out any direction you like.
Keep an eye out for courses on Masking Hair, Drawing Precise Selection with a Pen Tool and more. In the mean time, on behalf of lynda. com, this is Deke McClelland saying, See YA!
