I asked this on Graphic Design but was unable to get any relevant help from them.
I'm trying to reverse engineer a blending mode I've seen on a picture:
This image was created by someone else using Adobe's Scene7 during a Displacement Map Filter operation. I'm only interested in the blending mechanism, not the distortion.
Unfortunately, I was unable to reproduce this effect on other raster graphics editors. It almost looks like the images were blended with Multiply followed by a recolor operation of some sort. Anyway, I'm trying to figure out the equation used for this type of blending.
If you look at the top left corner of where the images overlap, you can see just a little bit of the background leaking to the foreground image.
The original images have the same dimensions and can be found below:
Any idea on how to duplicate this effect?
