Here is another handout for my Photoshop Elements students. This information came from http://www.photoshopgurus.com/tutorials/t010.html. As stated on the photoshopgurus site, this info can be found in the help files but it's nice to have a consolidated version. I formatted it for ease of printing and saved to PDF. This is a really helpful handout to understand Blend Modes and how they can affect your image.

Remember to try and get some play time in with the program before next week!
