Blend Mode-Lighten-06

Opposite with Darken mode, Lighten applies colors in the active layer only if they are lighter than the corresponding pixels in the underlying image. As with Darken, Photoshop compares the brightness levels of all channels in a full-color image. Pixels of underlying layer that darker than active layer are replaced, and pixels lighter than the blend color do not change.
