They are really useful  and very easy to understand. No doubt they will help improve anyones digital editing with Paint Shop Pro.

This tutorial will focus on improving images and they can also be used to create some interesting special effects - they can be seen in Terry's Tutorials.

While there are 20 blend modes in Paint Shop with the most useful ones being:

  1. Multiply
  2. Screen
  3. Overlay
  4. Color
  5. Luminosity

In addition to the blend modes, Mask Layers are also very useful and powerful.

Blend Modes

The Blend Modes determine how a layer will interact with the layers beneath it.

Paint Shop Pro boasts an amazing 20 different Blend Modes.

There are really only 5 of the 20 that a Paint Shop Photo digital editor really needs to understand and know:

  1. Multiply
  2. Screen
  3. Overlay
  4. Color
  5. Luminosity

If the change applied with multiply, screen or overlay is not enough simply duplicate the blend mode layer to double the effect and lower the opacity of the duplicate to achieve the desired results.
