    any way to merge a group filled with such different blending modes as 'overlay', 'color dodge', 'multiply', and 'soft light', without it turning all stupid and faded like you see up there?

    I dont think theres a way to make it exactly how you want it quite simply because you're merging a group into one layer but that has many different blending modes. I guess some will just contradict eachother so will look wrong as you've said.

    While googling, some answers say something like this:

    Hide all the other layers except the ones you want to merge, select all and then copy the merged layers (control + shift + c), you can then paste the merged result in a new layer and delete the others.

    I just Googled 'merge a group with different blending modes'. Its been asked. From the couple of websites I looked at, no one seemed to get it exactly how they wanted it.

    I wish you could save images with blending modes intact. you could do a lot of great things with blending modes outside of photoshop
