Create creative photo with photoshop blend modes

Do you know there are series of blend mode in photoshop that you can use to make your design more attractive? Blend modes that are found on a tool’s options bar affect how the colors or actions caused by that tool blend with the colors that are already on the current layer that you have selected in the Layers palette.

Those tool blend modes do not affect how those colors blend with the layers below that layer once the color or effect has been applied. This also applies to the blend mode chosen when using Edit > Fade; it affects how the colors are blended with the existing colors on the current layer. The blend mode setting in the Layers palette determines how each layer’s colors blend with the colors of all other layers below it in the Layers palette.
