[By Design] Empty White Background Does Not Act Like White Layer!

Recommended Posts

Hi

If we have a "layer A" right above white empty background, its blending mode will always be normal, even if it's set to another mode such as Screen!

Even if we have another "layer B" with normal blending but opacity less than 100 under our "layer A" , the problem still exists for layer A's blending mode.

It could make unwanted results in some cases as people usually suppose white background as a white layer!

Thanks;)

The white background is just your working space, not a layer, so there is nothing to blend.

It could be mistook for white layer, At the moment I personally need to make a white layer first to prevent unwanted results!

In the attachment I have a pixel layer with "Add" blending mode containing a white text and black background, and selected layer is a blue background with opacity:88... see the result:10_wink:

Thanks for raising this issue - we have closed it as "by design".

I still think it's a logical bug (because the white background and the white layer are exactly the same visually).. therefore could make mistakes for designers:)

@reza55n You might prefer to create your document with a transparent background, and then the confusion will not occur?
