Darker Color/Lighter Color Modes

blenderDarker Color – The Darker Color Mode is very similar to Darken except Darker Color looks at the composite of all the RGB channels, whereas Darken looks at each RGB channel individually to come up with a final blend. The result -the darkest of the base or blend pixels display and the colours aren’t altered. Lighter Color – is very similar to Lighten but as with Darker Color, it looks at the composite of all the RGB channels and in this case, keeps the brightest of the two without altering the colours.
