DCXII: Manipulation


© Colorburn

ibleedgraphite: the clouds near the horizon seem like they have linear burn applied
Lani Kai: I wouldn't know
ibleedgraphite: linear burn decrease brightness to darken the base color and reflect the blend color
Lani Kai: if you say so
Lani Kai: I've probably never used it before
ibleedgraphite: it looks like the clouds started a little lighter
ibleedgraphite: and were blended with the orange via linear burn
Lani Kai: I don't use blending options
ibleedgraphite: blending modes are the best
ibleedgraphite: do you at least use multiply?
Lani Kai: no
ibleedgraphite: if I have a Photoshop file with more than 10 layers
ibleedgraphite: chances are at least one is set to multiply
Lani Kai: I don't ever have more than 10 layers
Lani Kai: on extremely rare occasions
Lani Kai: I might have as many as two layers
ibleedgraphite: including adjustment layers?
Lani Kai: I don't really use that either
Lani Kai: god, how much photo manipulation are you doing?

DCXI: Strategy

ibleedgraphite: what does the phrase "strategic partnership" mean?
Lani Kai: that they will strategically take advantage of you and run away with all the money?
ibleedgraphite: well, how is that different from a regular partnership
Lani Kai: a regular partnership is not necessarily strategic
Lani Kai: maybe he will punch you and take your money and run
ibleedgraphite: I have strategically not stepped outside today
