– Once your firework images are overtop of your night time photo, setting the Blend Mode to Lighten will blend out the black background, leaving you with only the fireworks visible.

– If your background isn’t completely black, consider doing a bit more post-processing to create a higher contrast between the fireworks and the background. This will help in the blending stage.
