Rather than a "fixed" pipeline where one effect occurs after the other, nodes allow you to connect anything to anything else allowing a ton of flexibility for creating effects.

Blending Modes

Image
    Tool: Blending Modes Description: Multiply When using this mode, RGB channels are uniformly multiplied, always resulting in a darker image (layering the base layer pixel with the corresponding top layer pixel) Screen Similar to multiple, but uses 2 inversion passes to RGB channels, resulting in a brighter picture. Overlay A combination of the two, both increasing color intensity but also brightening the overall image. The darker areas of the base layer utilizes augments to darker values and the light areas of the top layer are likewise augmented brighter, almost using an HDR approach.

Levels and Curves

Image
   Tool: Levels and Curves Description: Levels often deals with the black, grey, and white points of the image. Grey is the middle ground between when you set as "max black" and "max white" Curves will typically be used to adjust overall intrinsic brightness (luminosity) or individual color adjustments (RGB). While it's possible to achieve similar results using each, they are best suited in using Levels for manual contrast and Curves for better color tone control.  Review: https://youtu.be/Wa1QSaUzefc Ease of Use: Scale of 1 to 5; 1 being easiest, 5 being hardest 2
