Adjusting the Blend If sliders: Photoshop Compositing Tips, Tricks, & Techniques

Sean Duggan explains the functionality of the Blend If sliders in the Layer Style dialog, and how they can be used to selectively hide, or show, areas of a layer based on tonal brightness values. He shows how to use the sliders for This Layer to control the visibility of the active layer, and the sliders for Underlying Layer to hide or show areas on layers beneath the active layers. He also shows how to split the Blend If sliders to create a more gradual transition between the visible and invisible parts of the layer.
