If I have a layer with a white background and I want to remove it, I can often just change the blending mode to Screen or Overlay and it ends up exactly the way I want it. However, I often want a different blending mode for the remaining visible pixels. Of course I could just select the area I want, but it takes a long time to achieve the exact same effect, especially when using overlay.
So I was wondering if there's a simple way to keep the layer exactly as it looks with a blend mode, even when converting it back to Normal? Hope that made sense
