Is it possible to set blend modes or composite modes for layers?

I am also interested in knowing this possibility.

I see no responses to this question after more than half a year... Are blend modes available in Pro? They were so easy in Pixelmator; they were automatically available. Everything I could do in Pixelmator so easily should also be in the Pro edition. That is a "Pro" version should have more than any "plain" version - Not less.

As a user I can confirm that the usual large mix of blend modes is available and, as of v1.1, you can mouse over them to see a preview.

Hope this helps,

There were a few different duplicate posts, so this one was somehow overlooked but blending modes are 100% available in Pixelmator Pro. You can use the Style to change the blending mode of a layer, and here's the section of the Pixelmator Pro Help manual that explains this:

You can also use the Help menu in Pixelmator Pro to search for topics like this, and typing the words 'blend' or 'blending mode' should bring up a few different, relevant articles.

Hope that helps!
