Here is something that I hope you will have some fun with and learn something about using the Layer Blend Modes.
I have created three .psd files that you can download to use. Each starts with a different black and white design that covers the entire page. Each of the three files is 12 x 12-inch, 300ppi, RGB. The object is to try different Layer Blend Modes on different colored Color Fill Adjustment Layers. Each of the files start you out with what I have done. But, change the color of the fill layers. Add more fill layers. Turn off and on some of the fill layer visibilities. Play...have fun.
An easy way to cycle through the blend modes...make sure that the Move Tool is selected...hold down the shift key...hit the + (plus) key to go down the list of blend modes...hit the - (minus) key to go back up the blend modes...keep the shift key down while doing this.
This is one of the three files showing you the basic design and with most of the adjustment layers having the visibility off.
This is one of the other files.
Here are three examples, one from each of the three files, showing you what you can come up with very easily.
So, you can see how easy it is to change the colors of a design using the blend modes and a color fill adjustment layer. Have fun with this. It can become sort of addictive while playing with all the blend modes in multiple layers.
Click HERE to download the files. They are in a zip file, so you will have to unzip to get to the files. The files should work in both Photoshop CSx and Photoshop Elements.
Have some fun with this and see how you can modify some of the papers you already may have.
That's all for now.
Happy Holiday Season to all.
Welcome to EarlK Design!
The EarlK Design blog consists mainly of entries that show how to do things using Adobe Photoshop that I hope you will find helpful and give your creative mind more tools to work with.
I use Adobe Photoshop CS6, and sometimes Adobe Illustrator CS5, Lightroom 5, and Corel Painter X. However, I believe that much of what I show can be done using Photoshop Elements.
