Chapter 14. The Wonders of Blend Modes > Advanced Blending Options

14.3. Advanced Blending Options

To display the Advanced Blending options, you have three options: First, you can double-click the layer thumbnail. Second, if you want to modify the Advanced Blending options for a specialty layer — such as type or an adjustment layer — right-click the layer name or thumbnail (Control-click on the Mac) and choose the Blending Options command. You also can right-click in the image window with one of the selection tools and access Blending Options that way. Third, you can press Alt (Option), and double-click the layer name. So you decide.

In any case, you'll see the vast and stately Layer Style dialog box. This one multi-paneled window holds controls for adding layer effects, changing the opacity and blend mode of a layer, and achieving some special blending tricks, which are discussed here. By default, you should see the Blending Options panel, pictured in Figure 14.25. If you're working in some other area of the dialog box, click the Blending Options item at the top of the list on the left side of the dialog box.
