    Hiya, I'm trying to get my colors right, but when I load up the sprites in game they end up washed out because of my lighting, so I am trying to replicate the lighting in Photoshop. Any idea what blend mode this would be?


    *Edit: Overlay seems like the closest, but it just isn't quite perfect.

    a lot of the lighting system work by subtracting from a black layer with a sprite drawing that sprite in the same spot(I am generalizing a bit) The issue with the washed out look may be the light sprite itself. maybe try adjusting the color and transparency on the light sprite a little and see if you can get a decent result.
