Blend If is my absolute favorite way to blend any layer and images in Photoshop. It is uniquely universal and provides dynamic masks built into each layer that will change and fluctuate as your image data changes and fluctuates. I feel Blend If is the best tool in Photoshop for blending images, but it does have its disadvantages:
- • It isn’t easy to find if you don’t know where to look for it
- • It’s not the most intuitive tool to use without direction
- • It’s so hidden that most people forget to use it
- • Its most powerful features (Blend If Color Channels) are rarely used
- • It’s not easy to undo the changes made to the sliders
While all those downsides are undoubtedly prevalent, I have solved them in this new Blend If Course. I teamed up with Tonee Gee once again to create the first-ever Blend If Panel for Photoshop. It makes blending layers a breeze while making it equally accessible to the viewer.
Until now, I have only shown Blend If in various forms in YouTube videos. For years subscribers have asked me to make an all-inclusive Blend If Course, but I never felt quite ready to produce it.
This course is finally ready and is a collection of all the ways I use Blend if in my workflow, and it gives you an incredible Blend If tool that you can use right now in Photoshop. I always say this is probably my best work yet, but this one truly is my best work! Enjoy!
This is EXACTLY what Blend If should have been from day 1!
You’re not alone. Many photographers and designers share the same frustrations. That is soon going to be a worry of the past for you!
No more endless tweaking of blending modes and layer masks. No more frustration trying to get the right look with incapable tools. With this panel and knowledge you’ll be able to create beautifully blended compositions in seconds, not hours.

Hey, I’m Blake Rudis, and I’m what you’d call a Photoshop fanatic. All my life, I’ve been trying to capture and edit the PERFECT photos, and for the last decade, I’ve been teaching others how to do the same.
In 2010 I launched a blog. While initially a way of showcasing my work, before long, thousands of people were visiting, asking me how I created the images I displayed. It quickly turned into an educational platform.
In 2016, I founded the f.64 Academy – a fully comprehensive “online school” for those wanting to learn how to use Photoshop to create the best-looking photos of their lives. Since then, I’ve helped thousands of Photographers learn basic and advanced Photoshop skills.
Today, I’m incredibly excited to share my passion for Blend If. I have been a pioneer on the Blend If front teaching hundreds of ways to use Blend If throughout my YouTube and Elite education. You will quickly see why I love this tool so much. I am honored to be your Blend If Mentor!
