I would like to create a transparent layer in pure color in PSD or AI. Using the opacity just washes the color out. I have done it before just can't remember how. It can be reproduced in HTML5 but I want to use in the adobe system.

  • I dont remember the way I did it as Ive been away from Adobe for quite along time.. but I remember the layer could retain its solid color and still be transparent... – thundereux Jun 20 '18 at 14:19
