    I know its not ideal, but could you look at the red green and blue values for both and average each amount - to creat your new colour

    If you create a pattern of alternating pixels, then resize the image to half its width and half its height, you should come up with a blend. Or find an averaging filter.

    Is everyone’s opacity broken? Whip out your brush tool, slam down the first color at 100%, then slap a coat of whatever color you want to mix with it at whatever percentage of the new color you want it to be. Example: Red-orange = 100% red underneath, 25% yellow on top. Hazzaah! (note: example is simplified, but you get the idea)
