Hi.

In Indesign one can create a color and fill an object with a percentage of that color. Is this possible in photoshop?

Thanx

Sorry.

I thought of that long ago.

But that doesn't cut it.

The opacity makes it somewhat see-through.

So if there's another layer or color beneath it, it'll change.

Not the way it works in Indesign.

In Indesign, I'll spec, for example, 10c/20m/30y/40k, and fill an object with, say, 38% of that. Nothing below it changes. Opacity is a separate and different feature.

And, the "fill" function, though in some ways different than opacity, effectively does the same thing in this case.

If you want the fill to be 100% opaque you would need to change the color dodge burn mix in gray white black if you change the opacity, fill, blend  etc lower layer will blend in. Clip adjustment. What does indesign do to render the pixels. I do not use indesign. What does it do to generate a fill with different percent fill? Diddle color add noise what do you see?

Not sure what it does under the hood to fill, but it does a regular fiil only at a percentage of the specified color. No transparency.

BTW Illustrator does the same thing.

It's just photoshop that doesn't. As far as I can tell.

That's why I Posted, to see if it can.
