Background Color – The background color can be selected from the toolbox and is used to create gradient fills, making a new file using the background color, or filling in an erased part of the image.


Blending Modes – A layer’s blending mode determines how the layer’s colored pixels will mix (relate) with the underlying pixels in the image. By default, there is no blending of layers, but by choosing and applying a blending mode, you can change this. Blending modes are generally used to create special effects like adding soft light or hard light or to change the color, saturation, hue, luminosity, etc.


Curves Tool – Allows you to control your color changes precisely and from the entire color spectrum. The Curves tool also allows you to preview changes as you make them, as well as view the changes to the ink values in the Info palette at the same time.
