Blend Mode-Hard Mix-14

Hard Mix-The Hard Mix blend mode combines the pixels in your layers using the Vivid Light blend mode and then performs a color threshold operation on them. Hard Mix mixes two layers and pushes the colors to their absolute extreme. All in all, Hard Mixed pixels come in only eight colors: black, white, red, green, blue, cyan, magenta, and yellow, the end result being quite similar to the Posterize command (Image - Adjustments - Posterize).
