Image masking refers to a process of manipulating image pixels and background to enhance quality. Adobe Photoshop provides sophisticated features for Image masking and manipulation. For instance, the clipping path technique is purposely for extracting the image from the background pixels by creating a path around it. Photo masking technique used together with clipping path method can make image swapping between different background themes.
Soft and hard edges of an image such as hair strands, furry clothes, dolls and any other object can be manipulated and customized to client preferences and taste. These images rendering facility is made possible courtesy of the unique photo masking and clipping path techniques. These two techniques complement each other in image masking with clipping path technique purposely for a hard edge and photo masking for a soft edge category. The latter can also be used where the clipping path method has failed to render the required outcome. This is common where there is a need to isolate the image before masking takes place. Image edges are not limited to the two categories of hard and soft. Another form of images such as lost edge and sharp edges can also be manipulated with other tools that can be found in adobe Photoshop. Image masking with Adobe Photoshop provides pen tablet which can be used for blending between soft and hard edges. It can also be used with lost edge images to isolate the image from the background in cases where the color themes are close.
Layer masks can be used to redefine background transparency levels in shades of white, gray or black. These can be done for either a specific or grouped layers. These renderings are made possible with the help of a pen tablet. We price differently based on task complexity and time constraints.
All objects separated from the background are saved, edited to conform to the required them using alpha channel masking. The photo file is then resized before uploading or downloading takes place. This method is suitable for single color background images.
Hair & Fur Masking:
Isolate hair & fur images from background pixel with the help of pen tablet for soft edge or any other tool. Photo masking works better than clipping path technique in achieving this. You can go ahead and edit the image to your preferred taste in terms of color, brightness, exposure, etc.
Refine Edge Masking:
Pick an image using the Quick Selection tool in Photoshop with the help of this facility. Apply Layer Mask of your choice and use the Radius tool to redefine the image edges to soft. This automatically renders the soft edge images making them not only to appear more natural but original as well.
Transparent object Masking:
These techniques enable you to redefine any glass or transparent object with 0% to 5% opacity, e.g., car glass, spectacles, bottle, water. Use it to retain or redefine your current theme.
Translucent object Masking:
This technique will enable you to manipulate translucent objects which are 5% to 100% opaque, e.g., frosted glass, bridal veil, paper, plastic bottle, Sunglasses, plastic bottle, etc.
Unsuitable image parts are picked with the quick selection tool and removed by layer masking. Object masking is useful for removing deformities from an image.
These features enable a designer to do retouching, color, exposure and even corrections to images. It can be used to remove hollow lines and printer scratches on scanned photos. It enables a correction to pixels for clear images.
