This week’s free video focuses on the blending mode of layer groups in Photoshop. When you create a Group (which looks like a folder), its blending mode at the top of the Layers Panel always defaults to Pass Through. Why is that considered normal instead of Normal mode and when might I want to change it? The answer has to do with how blending modes, blending sliders, RGB checkboxes and more affect the contents of what is below the group.

Have a great week everyone!
