View Full Version : colour dodge? 5.5 to 7?

I have just moved from 5.5 to 7, and I'm thoroughly confused at the way the 'colour dodge' blend mode is behaving. In 5.5 I would paint a white stroke on a layer of its own, set the blend mode to colour dodge and make a new solid colour below in a background layer. By simply adjusting the opacity I could change the amount of 'dodging'. In PS7 it acts completely differently. I do the exact same process but it looks like the 'screen' mode, and when I adjust the opacity it doesn't work as it should either. I have a feeling this is due to the irritating 'advanced blending' parameters.

Somebody help!

Fill the layer with black before you start painting on it.
If you already have some white on the layer, then:
Edit > Fill
Colour: Black
Mode: Behind
