Is there a non destructive way to Dodge & Burn in Pixelmator Pro?

Thanks in advance,
Sandeep.

Hi Sandeep.

It's not *quite* the same, but you can get something similar by adding an empty layer above an image and setting its blend mode to Soft Light (or Hard Light if you really want to make big changes). You can then paint on this layer with blacks and whites of varying opacity to modulate the effect. Alternatively, you can fill the new layer with mid-grey and use lighten and darken to create the effect.

There are bound to be many ways to do this but this is one that works for me.

Hope this helps.
