What's the point of a wiki that cann't be edited (there's no option for

Just keep the layer modes. Users don't know exactly what can happen, but
they do have an idea (this comes from personal experience). I use layers
with just one color and layer modes for special effects. Also, I even have a

this can be done using a new "enhance tool" but it is not necessary). The
photomanipulations that I make ( wouldn't be
possible without layer modes.
