Blend Modes-Color and Linear Dodge-08

Color Dodge Blending Mode
Looks at the color information in each channel and brightens the base color to reflect the blend color by decreasing the contrast. Blending with black produces no change. When you apply the Color Dodge modes, each color in the layer becomes a brightness-value multiplier. Light colors such as white produce the greatest effect, and black drops away.
