If you are serious about mastering all that Photoshop has to offer, you will find that being familiar with blend modes is as important as mastering layers. In this course we will explore the function of blend modes in a variety of scenarios such as image restoration, sharpening, adjustments, special effects, and so much more. Along the way you are encouraged to experiment with these blends modes in different ways than shown. With every project scenario being different, it is good to be familiar with the numerous possibilities.

    While this may be an older course (CS5 vintage) it remains outstandingly practical because the theory and techniques remain viable either directly or as alternatives. Corey is a great instructor and his enthusiasm always comes through. I am not a designer at all and really enjoyed the last chapters on using graphic elements to create more interesting images. Thanks Corey!
