Blending Modes Described by Mimi:
Dissolve: Nothing is happening? Oh wait! I have to change the opacity. Now the photo resembles watching television in the 90s and 2000s.
Darken: No White.
Multiply: Darken, but creepier.
Color Burn: Darken, but you forgot to replace all the colors that you for some reason, removed.
Linear Burn: Darkens, but also, brightens.
Darker Color: The darker pixel becomes the pixel that matters.
Lighten: No Black.
Screen: Very cool.
Soft Light: Imagine: lighten but softer.
Hard Light: See above.
Linear Light: Hard Light & Burn.
Pin Light: Colors are replaced depending on the percent gray that they are. I use a similar method when cleaning out my refrigerator.
Hard Mix: Colors are literally blended.
Difference: Colors are inversely blended. Anti-blended, if you will.
Exclusion: Difference but less inverse blending and more white.
Subtract: Exclusion but with less white and significantly more black.
Divide: How about instead of using any of these colors, we find a complimentary color to perhaps complement what might have been?
Hue/Saturation/Color/Luminosity: Rather than blending we are going to care only about the psychology of the colors.
