This is a simple snippet to use curve controls to control the blending between two sources. If you're familiar with blend if statements in photoshop, it's like that...but more precise. I really think photoshop needs an update to blend if statements, I made this as a stop gap. I find it useful for blending between two noise sources, or two seamless textures. If you load the same layer twice some neat faux hdr effects/tonal contrast effects can be made. Or just use it for outlandish blending effects...Here's how to use it:Open the tone curve: light tones are on the right/ dark tones are on the left. blue means the tonal range will blend, white means it won't. "Blend if This Layer", uses the tonal range of the top layer to determine opacity, Blend if Underlying uses the tonal range of the lower layer to determine the opacity of the top layer. you can use both simultaneously.
