It requires Full Justify (the extreme right icon). Left Justify would have no effect.

Intensity could mean highlights, contrast, shadows, or gamma depending on what you're trying to achieve.

comment Does this poster convey femininity and multiculturalism?
Another suggestion would be to make the subhead quite a bit smaller, perhaps half the current size, to give more contrast. It will help the visual impact.

Um, no. The question is "how do you arithmetically add two images". Intensity could have a variety of meanings in this context, but since the OP is a Stack Overflow and SU user, he's probably a developer. I'm willing to bet he means exactly what the question says.

Multiply is a multiplication operation, not addition. When image values are added, the image becomes lighter. Multiply always results in a darker image unless the layer is pure white or pure black.

The rest, as they say, is left as an exercise for the reader... (Calculations or Apply Image rock for creating masks.)

@joojaa I've never done that (ha! I wish...). It was a coincidence that I'd written that linked article just last week. Frequency separation retouching is the only technique I've come across that explicitly requires Linear Light, so it was fresh in my mind.

@joojaa, the only clean add operation is linear dodge. Linear light does add, but also subtracts, which is why it's grouped with "Overlay". You can see an important use of linear light blending here: creativepro.com/article/…
