Two new videos! Photoshop's 'Blend if' feature!

Journal Entry: Thu Aug 14, 2014, 10:39 AM
Hey everyone, I made a couple of new tutorials that are now up on YouTube! They explain Photoshop's "Blend If" sliders and why you should be using them if you aren't already. They're kind of a hidden feature, but they'll make your life a million times easier. Enjoy!

OMG this was super, super, super useful! Super! ;P It really was, I do this kind of stuff all the time but I do it through blending modes, selections and stuff... and i never knew what was the use of blending if! I'm gonna be using it all the time now! :) Thank you so much! It's going to save me a lot of time! And I loved that tip about changing the color of shadows, I have always used photo filter layer with masks and it's a little bit tedious.

Thank you so much! ^^

No problem! I used to do a lot of stuff that same way, using multiple techniques with masks, and blending modes and selections, but Blend If can really cut down on how much you need to do manually.

Precisely I used it on my last illustration to blend 3 different pictures of the sky! And I think it worked just nice! I can't thank you enough :D

"Blend if", those little sliders that I always ignored. Thanks for heads-up! :)

Haha, every time I learn some amazing new thing, I get a little irritated at how much time it would have saved me had I discovered it earlier.

That was interesting. Real neat feature. I was in there playing with the sliders a while ago and ended up with crap but pressing alt to adjust makes it brilliant. Thanks! :)
