Image Masking

Image masking is one of the most popular and useful image editing techniques which is done using Adobe Photoshop. To complete the photo masking job, the Pen tool is applied. Actually, it’s a method of removing the image background though the best way of doing this task is the clipping path process but when the technique is not enough alone for some complex images, then image masking takes place and completes the process perfectly as it is wanted.

There’re many complex images which have soft edge, outlines, many turns and curves such as hair, fur, or semi-transparent or translucent images like glasses, feathers, smoke, flames, highlights, lighting, chiffon, muslin, blanket etc. are subjected to image masking.

Remove hair background

There are several types of masking services such as hair or flesh masking, alpha channel masking, transparent or translucent image masking, collage masking and so on. For doing different kinds image masking, various techniques are used in Photoshop. Let’s have a look at the various photo masking.

Hair or flesh masking: This is a laborious task because the hair of flesh images usually have many soft edge, curves and thinner line area. The clipping path technique alone cannot remove the background of such a photo. That’s why, hair masking method is applied in Photoshop. The images like hairy doll, furry animals, flesh, cloth, models etc. are subjected to have this service.

Alpha channel masking: From some images by the image masking or the combination of clipping path and image masking technique, the background is removed or extracted the main images and saved it as an alpha channel which gives an opportunity to edit the file anytime. This process makes the file smaller. The single color images with non-serpentine soft edge are taken under this technique.

Transparent image masking: Sometimes the designers have to remove background from the transparent or translucent objects retaining the originality. Again, they have to place the image on another background after extracting from an unsuitable place where the back drop should be looked through the objects. The images like glasses, sun-glass, thin plastic product packet, bottle, fabrics, muslin, chiffon and so on are the images of this category.

Collage masking: The designers sometimes create a collage including various images together by copy and paste. By masking method, they decorate the images one by one to make a whole unique image, at times by blurring or highlighting the background according to the clients asking. Collage masking technique give birth a new image.
