David, thanks for the link I will check it out.


Matthew, I'm pretty new to QGIS but this capability really made this whole process much easier.  I often feel like I'm chasing my tail in ArcGIS.

DogwoodGeo you are spot on with respect to using QGIS's blending modes with integrating colors with shading. That process incidentally mimics the layer blending options available in Photoshop and Illustrator.


I think ESRI's lack of offering layer blending modes in ArcPro is an oversight I wish they would amend.


QGIS blending modes are great (and yeah, why is Esri so behind in this?). But I was thinking more about PS levels/curves tools as well as median and blur filters for processing hill shades. A bit more advanced then what typically needed, but lots of options for modifying tone or color, generalizing details, or adding special effects like sun lit slopes.
