Join Chad Chelius for an in-depth discussion in this video Layer opacity and blending modes, part of Time-Saving Tips Using Photoshop.
- [Instructor] When it come to fine-tuning … the appearance of a project, the devil is in the details, … and those details often come down … to fine adjustments that often include … tweaking the opacity of en element … or changing its blending mode. … Let me show you how I like to adjust … these properties within Photoshop. … So over here on the layers panel, … you're going to see again I have a bunch of layers … that compile this particular project, … and what I'd like to do to start … is I'm going to click on the H+ Sport logo, … and if you look in the layers panel up here at the top, … the opacity is currently set to 76%, … and we can mess around with the opacity value. … I can click on the arrow, and I can drag, … and as I'm going to show you a little bit later, … we can also utilize the scrubby sliders to adjust that, … but sometimes it's better if I can … visually look at my project and be able … to see the adjustment as I make it … instead of having to focus on the layers panel. …
