Changes in LayerSlider 6.2.0
Introducing a new premium feature: Blend modes. Blend modes are an easy way to add eye-catching effects and is one of the most frequently used features in graphic and print design.
The admin UI now warns against potential issues when selecting certain options, which are commonly misunderstood and would result unexpected behavior.
Added OSD notifications for certain keyboard shortcuts (e.g. Ctrl/Cmd + S for saving the slider) and a corresponding setting under Screen Options to enable/disable this feature.
Added layerslider_root_url filter to override paths. Check the Developer Documentation for more information.
Improved compatibility with older sliders.
Improved handling of font variants when importing Google Fonts from templates.
Certain number input fields are now stepping in more appropriate intervals when pressing the arrow buttons.
Updated and extended some parts of the documentation.
A massive update for multimedia layers:
Fixed video size and positioning issues, which was present in rare edge cases.
Fixed occasional playback issues with videos being on the first slide.
Fixed the slideshow not progressing forward in cases when there was only one video layer on the slide.
Hiding a media layer with the Device support feature will now also disable media playback on the corresponding devices. In addition, background videos will also show the video poster image as a fallback. This enhances user experience on mobile devices that has limited playback capabilities due to OS/browser restrictions.

Fixed image chooser when using the “Use post image” option.
Fixed the “Use post URL” option in linking fields.
Fixed the Slider Settings -> Appearance -> Global background image option to always use the appropriate URL.
