BlendMode is incorrect on LayerGroup

It seems like blend mode is not handled for LayerGroup.

The blend mode is set to “Pass Through” in photoshop. However when loaded in this SDK, the blend mode value read as “Normal”. This affect how some non-Normal layers or adjustment layers interact with other layers outside of the “Pass Through” layer group.

It is a very simple scenario, your programmer could just use any one of your sample code to open a PSD with "Pass Through” blend mode on a LayerGroup and observe the incorrect value.

The following is a PSD with LayerGroup “AdjustmentGroup” set to use "Pass Through”. (62.9 KB)
