I listened through this, and found it, sadly, a little light. For example, Blend If, one of my favorite tools, has many more exacting, concrete, and exciting uses than are discussed here. Though the segment starts out well enough with a concrete example of the basics of what the tool does, it is pretty clear in listening that the example is not stressing the idea of what Blend If is really useful for. There are enough ways for users to play with their images in Photoshop (e.g., random annointment of filters), but using Blend If for experimentation purposes to "see what you come up with" is probably not the best advice for the tool.

There are many concrete purposes for using Blend If. You can create selections/exclusions/masks of specific color ranges and tones, and you can target areas of tone/color to apply specific effects. I have used it in colorizing images, for example, in a way blending modes will just not accomodate.

Blend If certainly is a powerful tool, and it is also a much misunderstood one, as the tutorial itself emphasizes. I like the idea of these shows...the studio is apparently very nice. The information itself could be more polished and geared more toward practical understanding of the tools and processes so that people have more of an idea as to how to apply what they see, and why.
