Very little luminance is shown for the blend pixels. Sick of all the computer generated un-reality. May your Light always be wonderful! Composites compromise the power of photography, shifting the emphasis from a photographer's reaction to the subject to mere artistry. The original dramatic sky is great, too. Mix controls the ratio of canvas color to reservoir color.
Hue Uses the color hue of the blend color. The Gradient tool unlike a Gradient Fill or Gradient Map Adjustment Layer is similar to the Brush tool. Whenever you apply the same effect to all the layers of a composite, you make them aesthetically closer. Here's where gradients differ though. Have you tried, say, removing that small annoying seagull that just happen you fly into your shot ruining your sky. The guy doing the layered piece of art is making something that looks better perhaps? I this article I fail to see any problem regarding image manipulation.
Another thing to note about the Overlay blend mode, is that it and the Hard Light blend mode are commuted versions of each other. Take the two images of the fire and the sinister looking man. All you need to do is choose screen blending mode and its perfect and quick Making anything look better, especially people This next blending mode Overlay is guaranteed to make almost any image look better. But I guess I have learned to appreciate there are many forms of photography these days, many ways to poduce 'the image', and so long as 'it works', I try not to judge 'how' they made it work. With a circle on a new layer, choose the oval shape tool. That is correct, but it can do more than that.
The 50% opacity took away the cobblestone. You could take the Patch tool and remove the firemen and just have pure flames. For example, if you have the Paint tool selected and you use the keyboard combination 22, the opacity for the Paint tool will be changed to 22%. With this blend mode, similar colors cancel each other, and the resulting color is gray. If the resulting sum for a channel is 255 or greater, it receives a value of 255; if less than 255, a value of 0.
The result color is always a darker color. Do not get me wrong. For this tutorial only the Linear Gradient will be employed. I chose to add a few pigeon photos from a series that I captured, and blended them all together into a single photo with the digital blending technique. Notice a huge difference in the colors and contrast right away. A black layer mask does just the opposite. If the blend color is darker than 50% gray, the image is darkened by decreasing the brightness.
Select the clear blending mode from the options bar. Compare the results to this end image to the beginning image. There will always be various ways to achieve better results; explaining the technique was the point. This means then, if you have the opposite of a previous example; white text reversed out onto a black background you have a strategy.

Results in an intense, contrasty color-typically results in saturated mid-tones and blown highlights. If you slide the black triangle to the right, any luminance levels to the left of the triangle will become transparent, so the composite pixels from the layers below will show through. Mix controls the ratio of canvas color to reservoir color. I went through all the stuff like I see and read here. Blend Modes Groups Keyboard Shortcuts The majority of blend modes have keyboard shortcuts. It is important that general perceptions are considered. I just read some of the comments about this, and apparently there are a lot of people who don't realize that many people use Photoshop for stuff other than photo optimization.
