Masking

To edit complex or highly detailed images, masking is the best method available. Our masking services can take images with transparent components or fine details (such as hair or fur) and set those images against new backdrops. Best of all, we can give you the open masked files from alpha channels, so that you can take the masked image and re-use it for other projects.

Making Meaning of Masking

Masking is a photo editing process that involves covering, or masking, part of an image and protecting it from editing. The un-masked part can then be isolated, edited, or removed. Masking allows the editor to change the colours of the un-masked area or change the background surrounding the masked image. Although masking is similar to a clipping path, masking is more advanced and allows the editor to isolate small details, like strands of hair, and protect those areas so that they can be used in the new image. Images that are rich with texture or detail should be edited with masking. Masking also can be used to transfer transparent objects, like wedding veils, from one background to another.

During the masking process, the protected area is stored onto what is called an alpha channel. Alpha channels can be saved as files, and as part of our masking services, we can give you the alpha channels of your image for easier post-editing or image-recycling.

Who Requires masking?

From photographers to advertising agencies, e-commerce sites, and retailers, masking can be beneficial for anyone. Masking should especially be used for macro images and images with high resolution where the smallest details are easily discernible to the viewer.
