Passthrough vs. Normal group blending The difference is mainly how the adjustment layers work.
"Passthrough" is actually not a separate blending mode. It controls application of color blending and adjustment layers
Blending mode of the group
In Passthrough mode color blending is applied ignoring the group; all adjustment layers within the group apply to all layers below
In all other modes color blending is first applied within the group;
all adjustment layers within the group apply only to the layers of the group
The effect "passes through" the group.
The effect is confined to the group only.
Adobe Photoshop ® users: The Passthrough mode in Painter works exactly like the Pass Through mode in Photoshop.
Pro tip: You can easily apply an adjustment or a filter to a single layer using this method. Group the adjustment layer with the layer you want and set the group to Normal blending. (However you can achieve the same result with layer clipping; see page 170)
