Join Daniel Lieske for an in-depth discussion in this video Blend modes, part of Drawing and Painting in Photoshop - The Great Training.
- We've talked about all the tools that you can use…to apply color to the digital canvas now,…and I want to close this chapter by describing an option…that all these tools have in common.…I'm talking about the Mode that you can see…in the options panel, here, and the brush tool,…but also in the gradient tool,…and the paint bucket tool over here.…I will use the brush tool to demonstrate…the effect of different Mode settings.…
You see that the mode comes with a pull-down menu,…and in it we find a long list of different modes,…and I won't describe them all,…only the most important ones, and we'll start…with a preset Normal Mode, and in Normal Mode,…our brush just behaves, well, normal.…And by that I mean, that it behaves…like a brush on paper…if you're using it with an opaque paint…like acrylic paint, oil paint, or gouache.…
So what it does, basically, is…it takes the foreground color that is selected,…and applies it to the canvas, and if you change the color,…the new color will just cover up…all other colors that are already on the canvas.…
