  • Blend Mode Order

    With every photo editing program I've ever used the blend modes are arranged in a particular order, with like modes grouped together. The typical arrangement is Normal > Darken > Lighten > Inverse > Cancellation > HSL . In ACDSee the arrangement is all over the place as you can in the first table below. Why not arrange the blend modes in a more logical order like in second table?
