    photoshop help?

    Hey everyone, I'm following a guide, and at one step it just tells me to "set layer to overlay" When I go into Layer styles, I see color overlay, gradient overlay, and pattern overlay, none of which produce the desired effect. Can anyone help?

    In the layers window, highlight the layer you are working on, the Overlay option is in the blending drop down menu.
    Where it says normal

    EDIT - What he said ^^

    Assuming you're using CS3 underneath the layers tab there is a drop down menu that by default is set to normal. click on the arrow and you will find overlay.

    Yup, I see it now. How'd you know I'm using CS3?

    I've seen those before! They're hilarious. The paths one was actually really useful.

    CS3 and below use the same setting.

    In the Layers palette, right click the layer you want to change, choose Blending Mode for a window with all of the options, the little 'fx' at the bottom of the palette gets the same window.
