Educators Paper

An old master painting is a highly "made" thing, and every aspect of its appearance was subject to careful consideration and evaluation before its manufacture. These aspects can be very hard to grasp, but with Photoshop's advanced toolset, they can be visualised and made more accessible for the student of art history. This paper details interesting applications of the Adjustments menu, the Blend modes, and the Blend If values.
