The Power of Using Blending Modes in Photoshop

On this special halloween video tutorial Aaron Nace from Phlearn shows how to create a cool album cover-like image using blending modes in Photoshop.

The image Nace is preparing in this video is a composite. He shows in a step by step tutorial how to use each image in a different layer and then shows how to use different blend modes to achieve all sorts of artistic “goals”. There is a lot of educational content on this video and even if you are doing something completely different with Photoshop, this tutorial might very well help you later on.

We highly recommend watching the video understanding blending modes in photoshop if you are unfamiliar with the subject of blend modes (its a really useful introduction by Jesús Ramirez).

You can find many more Photoshop video tutorials on LensVid’s Photoshop section (and you can find a lot more Phlearn videos on our special Phlearn subsection).
