Photoshop Tutorials: Image Masking

[ad_1]

Adobe’s Photoshop is by far the most used image editing application in the world, mainly because it offers extremely powerful editing tools at a minimum price. One of those very powerful editing tools is Image masking: a process that involves the removal of the background for a particular image. Thus, you can change the wall behind you with a beach in Miami, for example. And if done properly, no one will know the difference.

How it works

There are a lot of image masking techniques but the most well-known and used technique is called clipping path: using the Photoshop Pen Tool, expert users can take any object from a photo and make it a standalone object. You can then place that object in another image of your choice. Should the end results not be according to your wishes, remember that you can improve your image’s quality by adding filters or feather effects to smoothen its edges.

How it is done

By dragging the pen tool around the edges of the desired object, you create a selection. After said selection is completed all that remains is to cut the image and paste it into an empty canvas. An empty canvas is another image with no background or other such elements. Save the picture as a .psd file and you will be able to use it in any of your projects.

Advanced Photoshop users can also create multiple clipping paths and split a particular image into layers: for example, you can separate a website into header, body, footer and widget layers. Save it into a .psd file and there you have it: your very own custom made website. You will also need to learn coding of course, but there are always freelancers around who are willing to make the necessary adjustments for the right price. Getting an image to express exactly what you intended is generally a trial and error operation. You will get there eventually but not without multiple attempts.

Too difficult?

Should you find this image editing technique to be a bit too difficult or too time consuming, you can always ask for a bit of help. You can find a lot of experts on the Internet and also there are plenty of online photo editing websites that offer to do the hard work for you for as little as half a cheeseburger. Due to the widespread of social mediums such as Facebook or Instagram, such services are very sought after.
