Jacqueline asked if I wouldn't post a tutorial on using layers and blending modes. Glad to do it. Hope you find this helpful and fun. If you have questions, please join the discussion below. I'll answer your questions here where all can benefit. Have a great day, my friends. NOTE: This tutorial used Photoshop CS screenshots and instructions. The new CS2 version is a little different - see the discussion below.

Stop trying to figure out who's talented and who's not, and just take a shot at it, okay? Do some art. Tell anybody who asks that I said it was all right. ---Emma Bull

Yeah, Keith. However, they did something nicer in CS2. Let's say you want to select a bunch of layers in a row (having more than one selected is the same as locking them together in the earlier versions). You click on the first one to select it. You then Shift-Click on the last one, and every layer in between will also be selected. Or you can CTRL-Click on just the ones you want to select (or deselect) if they're not all in a row. I wondered about whether to use the CS2 interface or CS1, then finally decided to go with the earlier version, because I thought more people would probably be using it.

A great and useful tutorial Nathan. I never understood the purpose of layer locks. Thank you.

There are three colours, Ten digits and seven notes, its what we do with them thatís important. Ruth Ross

This is a beautiful Job Natan. I gave it a 10. But It might be smart to edit your posting notes to mention that the Layer's palette has changed with version CS2 and it does work and look somewhat differently from earlier versions.

Ooops Keith already noticed that...still an edit will help some folks. I do prefer the new way, but it took a bit of time to get used to it.
