Photo masking


Photo masking?

Introduction

How do I remove or change the background of a photo? How can I change or control the transparency of a portion of a photo? Why is masking so important in editing? These are some of the questions that bore the minds of many photographers. But the simple answer to these questions, and many more, is PHOTO MASKING. A big Photoshop user said, ‘if you must compete with your fellow photographers, then this is a skill you need to learn’. As a matter of fact, 99% of the best photographs in the display, today, were edited using masks.

Arguably, this is one of the very many essential techniques of photography and photo editing. Excellent skills with the camera are not what defines a photographer in the world of today. The post-production process tells a client the level of professionalism a photographer has. And sadly, so many photos, today, get rejected by clients due to either bad capturing or editing process. Photo masking is considered as one editing technique common to professionals, so we can say that it distinguishes a professional from a beginner. It has the ability to add ‘sauce’ to a photo. Some call it photo masking, others call it image masking.
But whichever you choose to call it, bear in mind that this is one feature every client looks out for in the works of a photographer or editor.

What is Photo masking?

Photo masking? Or image masking? When you hear this term, what comes to mind? In a layman’s language, one could describe photo masking as changing parts, or all, of the layer of a photo. Or better still, you could say that it is an editing process in photography where a portion of a photo is made different from the other part of the photo.

However, the application of photomasking to the editing process requires a considerable amount of knowledge on the basic skills of editing. ‘Dexterous’ application of the brush tool, understanding the two-colour concept (black and white) and knowledge of the functions of layers would help in adopting the process of photo masking.

Why is photo masking essential?

There’s hardly any feature without one benefit, or more. Like I stated earlier, understanding this technique could help you jump from a beginner level to a more advanced level of photo editing.

Photo masking helps editors to tweak the background of an image. They can either preserved a portion or alter a part that does not look presentable, as the background. It could give new looks to old images and create stunning photos.

With it, the transparency of a portion of an image can be changed or controlled. You might go on to say that the opacity and fill features also does this- in the real sense, they work on the whole layer, not a part of it.

And yes, it generates income. Because of the level of professionalism attached to it, photo masking spawns in more income. Trust me; you wouldn’t want offers worth money to slip away because you have no idea of what photo masking is.

How do I photo mask?

There are two known types of photomasking- Layer masking and Clip masking.

Layer Masking: considered to be more popular among photographers. In this type of photo masking, a mask is used to conceal a portion of a photo, revealing the other layers underneath.

The level of transparency of either portion remains independent of the other. It deals less with transparency and uses more of the two-colour concept, black and white. And this is one major difference between layer masking and clip masking.

The process of layer masking is not as hard as you are already thinking it is. It is quite easy and could be carried out independently. With the help of the magic wand feature in Photoshop, and either the marquee tool or shape/quick selection tool, you could select the image you wish to mask. And with a few clicks, selections and adjustments, you could create an appealing layer masked photo.

Clipping Masking: as the name implies, it involves applying a mask to a group of layers. In this type of masking, the level of transparency of a portion is dependent on the other. Usually, the lower layer determines what level of transparency the upper layer carries.

Unlike layer masking, the clip masking process deals with more content and transparency
