Photoshop offers numerous image masking tools like- Magnetic Lasso, Quick Mask, Magic Wand, and the Pen tool. But all tools don’t provide the best quality output. It is beneficial to use layer mask photoshop than others because Photoshop mask layers can smooth the progress to effect a change, bringing the image distortion to a minimum. The mask layers technique provides professional effect to objects in all kind of faded or distorted pictures; the result is an ultra sharp image for the portal.
For Hair masking- Images with plain background (professional, studio type photos), Channel masking is perfect. To Mask in Photoshop, depending on the images we use knock out software also, Knockout- is a much more powerful tool and enables to remove “impossible” objects like glass, liquids, hair and smoke. Alpha Chanel Photoshop Masking techniques also used where required for best quality masking. To create a mask is a time consuming job to get the finest result, but we have trained, superfast Designers, who are capable to give outputs as fast as you need!! Our team is working harder to serve better quality day by day.
Image Masking is great non-destructive technique used in Photoshop for making complex selections, especially of natural or organic objects like hair, fur where there are no hard edges. By switching between big and small brushes, it’s easy to trace even most fiddly objects with a little patience.
If we simply place two pictures on top of each other, only top layer would be visible becausetop layer obscure any layer beneath. However, we can apply mask to top layer to define which areas of bottom layer are visible. In thus by drawing mask on top layer help us to show which areas of bottom layer are visible through it.
Image Masking is a fundamental non-destructive technique as it does not directly make any adjustment on picture/layer itself. We can use it add or subtract parts of a layer. We can smooth mask and even change the opacity to create great results.
Donning The Mask:- Masks and selections: The power of effect that apply indiscriminately to all pixels is tremendous – but think how much more potential these effects have if we can apply them to some areas and not others, then apply different effects to yet other areas. This is made possible by the duality of masks and selections.
Just as we use masks in real life to hide, show or protect parts of our faces, so must use them in photoshop to give our images the same privileges. Much like selections, masks define which parts of the image will be effects by our tinkering and which parts won’t. They also determine which parts of a layer will be shown and which remains hidden. Image Masking is the best technique for making complex selections, especially of natural or organic objects where there are no hard, straight edges.
Image Masking is largely a mechanical process—but there is still an element of subjectivity and judgment involved. Our staff is all well trained and experienced in graphic design for print production, so you can be sure they’ll make the right call. One of the ways of isolating an object from its background is by using Alpha channels. Like masking, this method is pixel rather than vector based, but the technique used is different. Every color digital images contain three or four color channels; either red, green, and blue or cyan, magenta, yellow and black. When isolating an image using Alpha channels an extra channel is created which contains the shape of the isolated object rather than a color. Alpha channels are often used to isolate objects with a lot of detail and are made by using the color channel with most contrast. Like clipping paths, an Alpha channel can be selected in Indesign, Quark or Photoshop.
If you want your images done with this method, you just have to add the instruction in the description job when you create a job at PerfectClippingPath.com. For Alpha channels creation, PerfectClippingPath.com will isolate your images using the selections and contrasts in color channels. You will need to upload moderate to high-resolution images for processing. We will deliver processed images TIF or PSD file format.
Image Masking technique: There are various ways to mask an image including the pen tool, highest contrast channel-based masking and hand-painting. Our staff choose the most appropriate method or combination of methods, based on the image they are masking.
Number of masks per image: Our flat fee covers up to 3 masks per image. In our experience, this is enough for all but the most intricate work. We’ll decide for each image whether 1, 2 or 3 masks are most appropriate (it’s normally fairly obvious—and our staff is good at making the call).
Turnaround time: We’ll give you an estimated turnaround time as you fill in your order details. That timing will be based on our current capacity and workload. We are easily able to increase capacity with short notice, so if you have regular high-volume work you would like us to process we urge you to get in touch to discuss your needs.
