How to Blend On Procreate

The question on many a woman’s mind is how to learn how to blend on Procreate? Blending is one of the most important techniques you can master when it comes to creating beautiful and natural looking photos and art. Learning how to blend correctly means taking the time and effort to really understand how the photo is composed and made, and what effect you want to achieve. The process starts with understanding the overall composition, then experimenting with different effects to get the best result.

So how do you get started with learning how to blend on Procreate? The first step in how to blend on Procreate would be to locate the Blend Options button located right at the top of the screen (usually next to the graphics button). When you’ve found this button, double-click it to open the appropriate blending tool. Various blending options are available, including: Auto Blending, Manual Blending, Timing Blending and Paint Bucket. Each blend mode will produce a unique result depending on your camera model and settings.

To blend a photo, simply use the Color, Rhythm or Color Balance options with your mouse to determine where on the image you’d like to place the selected image. When you’re in a particular mode, the color or value will be determined by whatever setting was last used to create the image. For example, if you were to select Color Rhythm, the chosen color would be the color of your subject (unless of course you’re using an editable photo, in which case the color is the entire background).

When you’re in blend mode, you’ll see two bars appear on the screen, along with a timer above the images. The length of the timer determines how long the image is blended for. At the top of the screen you’ll see a question asking what effect you’d like. You can choose blur, fade in, or simply adjust the image to have a little fun with the blending. There is also a ‘save’ option at the bottom of the screen, but I would not recommend saving your work as you could lose your changes when you go to restore them.

After you have finished blending, click the red eye checker to verify that everything has been blended correctly. Then click the button saying ‘Save All Changes’. Your work will be stored on the Cloud and you can retrieve it from any computer. You may need to sync your photo library to an editing program to get the best results, but that’s nothing you need to worry about. Once your photo is ready, you can use the ‘olor’ option on your Personalize tab in Procreate to change the appearance of your artwork.

Once your personalized picture is complete, you can share it with family and friends by printing off fliers. If you’re planning on showing it off at a baby shower or another get together, just give them a quick call to set up an appointment. I’m sure they’ll have many questions about how to blend on Procreate!
