Here’s a quick tutorial on how to make a photo composition with the Photoshop Mix blend feature.

select a photo:

For Color Cut-Out:

You’ll want 2 layers of the same photo. So, tap on your photo and duplicate it onto layer 2.
For the top layer go to: Looks > Ashen (grey)
Tap the check mark.
Then go to Cutout > Subtract slider (minus sign).
Rub the area with your finger to subtract it. This colorizes the area as the bottom color layer shows through. In my example, the blue flowers show through.
Tap the check mark.

For blend:


Add a photo to a 3rd layer. (rain)
Tap Blend > Overlay

The resulting effect adds mysterious depth and shadows to the composition:

Another composition:


I used clouds as the 3rd layer for this composition, which added more blue tints to the overall image.
