    What is color burn layer?

    hummer777 Level 1


      I was reading one of techniques for removing blue haze from pictures.
      The initial two steps were as follows:


      1. Click on your color burn layer
      2. Select all and copy the color burn layer only to the clipboard

       

      I have never used "color burn layer".  So I have no idea what "color burn layer" is and how to create it.

      Please asvise me how to creaste color burn layer.
      I have photoshop CS5 (with Windows 7).

          That usually means applying the color burn layer blending mode to a layer.

           

          Can you post a link to the tutorial?

           

          If it's in a book then there must be steps mentioned somewhere on how they got the color burn layer.

            It is not a tutorial.   Somebody asked the question in a photo forum. 

            I now lost the original webpage but I copied the anwer as follows:

             

            ****************

            Click on your color burn layer

             

            Select all and copy the color burn layer only to the

            clipboard

             

            Open a Hue/saturation adjustment layer but make no corrections just press OK.

             

            Alt click on the Hue/adjustment layers mask this will make the screen go white.

             

            Edit> paste... this will paste the color burn layer to the mask.

             

            We must reverse the mask now so press Ctrl+I or Image>Adjustment>Inverse

             

            Click on the adjustment part of the hue/saturation or Alt click on the mask again.

             

            Now reduce saturation by moving the saturation slider to the left.

              One can only guess (at least i can only guess how the color burn layer was created) since the instructions are incomplete and we probably need to know the question.

              Could be anything from just naming a layer color burn to actually applying a color burn blending mode to a layer, then merging with another layer or any number of ways.

              There is no actual layer in photoshop called color burn.
