If it's helpful here are the statistics from Adobe's photoshop forums on
the prevalence of questions about blend modes.

Number of results returned from searching on "blend mode": 500 results

I then searched on individual filters and counted the real results (vs.
enumerations of blend modes from bug reports & file dumps etc.)

"linear light" : 38 results

"hard mix": 24

"linear dodge": 22

"linear burn": 15

"vivid light": 12

"pin light": 3

>From eyeballing the forums, it seems like the most common blend modes
referenced in real questions are:

1) Normal

2) Screen

3) Multiply

4) Soft light

5) Color

(I am not a Photoshop expert, but it seems like you should be able to
duplicate the Soft Light blend mode with lighting effects, and you can
duplicate the Color blend mode with a color matrix + multiply)
