Do you want to learn more about blending modes in Photoshop and be better able to edit your images with more control and precision? Jesús Ramirez of the Photoshop Training Channel is here to help with the crash course below. The video below is less than 10 minutes long, so it cannot cover all the blending modes in great detail. However, if you want additional information and have more free time, Ramirez also made a 41-minute video about blend modes.

What exactly is a blending mode? A blend mode basically takes the pixels of one layer and blends them with pixels from another layer. This results in different effects, sometimes ones dramatically different in appearance. How can you utilize blend modes to improve the look of your photos? Find out in the video below.
