I'm trying to reproduce a model from a youtube tutorial. I'm currently trying to texture my model using photoshop. I've unwrapped my model successfully, but now when I paint the UV islands and load the image into blender, my textures/colors don't have the desired look, and I'm unsure why. It appears that they are very light. I believe it has something to do with how I baked my ambient occlusion image?

Here's the ambient occlusion image with all the layers in photoshop in the tutorial enter image description here

I set the sampling in "world" to 20 like he did. This happens for every color. I tried just straight black and it turned pretty light gray.

Can anyone help?

Fixed it! I had to change the blend mode on both my AO layer and my UV layer to "Multiply" in photoshop. I had only changed my AO layer to multiply, but the UV layer needed it as well.

    $\begingroup$ Just turn of Layer 0. It's a UV image :) $\endgroup$
