High quality image masking Photoshop
Image masking in simplest of words is a process which involves clearing an image to exhibit it in
the best possible light. You are applying clearness to an image when a layer is put on it. It is not
easy to digest what the process is for a new comer who has no experience in using Photoshop.
An interesting comparison of the type of covering made in Photoshop along with its differences
are discussed below.
There are basically two types of image clipping mask Photoshop techniques used in Photoshop
Layer and clipping covers. While there are many ways to cover an image, some of them like
color separation, channel guise, extract tool and background removal tool are the basically
applied tools to bring out the worthiness of a photo.
This is a widely used Photoshop background removal technique. The reason it is used in such a
wider domain is its simplicity. Color Separation helps to differentiate the background color from
the item color of an image. For example if the hair color is black then you have to choose a
more lighter color as background color while choosing color separation. A nice variation
between the center color and background will be shown and this deepens due to color balance.
The second actively used technique to bring out quality pictures is to rely on channel masking.
This represents the variety between background and object. When I is successfully carried out,
color balance using color separation can be easily carried out. The shortcut for applying this
technique is ctrl+click. An appropriate selection is made automatically so that you need not
worry about the layer on which channeling takes place.
One of the important uses of the Extract tool is when compound masking is carried out. Extract
tool can be applied by clicking filter>extract and customizing the option according to image
constraints. You need to pull all the attention towards the border of the selection before
applying extract tool. Background will be removed in the output picture and there will be an
Background eraser tool
Before using the background eraser tool, it is wise to create a clipping mask Photoshop path
above the solid area. Wrong application of the same will cause hair or fur properties to vanish.
It is very important to practice extreme caution while applying the background eraser tool due
to its nature. If there is a blend of white and black backgrounds, then extreme care has to be
kept while differentiating the hair particles near to the boundary.
Due to the complexity of using these tools, many new comers who require excellent results
depend on individuals who are expert in handling Photoshop. Professional organizations offer
image masking services which helps amateurs to release some stress related to image editing.
It is safe to depend on veteran hands when the required effect needs expert services. Applying
the same in real life pictures can be a daunting task.
