This will open up a dropdown list containing all of the Blend Mode options that are available:

  • Normal: Default value. The layer below does not bleed through the current layer.
  • Multiply: The current layer and the layer below are multiplied, so this usually means a darkened effect.
  • Screen: The current layer and the layer below are both inverted, multiplied, and inverted once again.
  • Overlay: The current layer and the layer below are mixed together to show their lightness or darkness.
  • Darken: If the current layer is darker than the layer below then the current layer is replaced, else no changes are applied.
  • Lighten: If the current layer is lighter than the layer below then the current layer is replaced, else no changes are applied.
  • Color Dodge: The layer below is divided by the inverse of the current layer.
  • Color Burn: The layer below is inverted, divided by the current layer, and then inverted once more.
  • Hard Light: ​​If the current layer is lighter than the layer below then the effect applied is Multiply else it is Screen.
  • Soft Light: Similar to Hard Light but with a more diffused spotlight effect.
  • Difference: Subtraction of the darkest color of the current layer and the layer below from the lightest one. The result is a high contrast effect.
  • Exclusion: Similar to Difference but with lower contrast.
  • Hue: The current layer’s hue is combined with the luminosity and saturation of the layer below.
  • Saturation: Mixes hue and luminosity of the current layer and layer below while keeping saturation of the current layer.
  • Color: Keeps the current layer’s hue and saturation and the layer below’s luminosity.

  • Content: Choose the Content option if you want the background to be clipped to the content box.
  • Border: Use this option to extend the background to the outer edge of the border. Note that the background will appear underneath the border but it’ll only be visible if the border has transparent sections or partially opaque sections (because of border style). 
  • Text: Select the text option to clip the background to the text element i.e. paint the background within the text.
