What is Masking using Photoshop?
Masking using Photoshop is one of the photo editing techniques used to extract an object form its original background like what clipping path does. “Really, clipping path and image masking are two different methods, though both serve the same function.”. Usually clipping is used to cut out the images with hard and clear edge while, Masking using Photoshop technique is applied to isolate the images with subtle edge like hair, fur, leaves etc.
How to Apply Image Masking using Photoshop?
There are different methods of accomplishing Photoshop masking. “It adds color separation method, channel mask, extract tool, background erase tool etc. The strategy varies on the basis of the complexity of an image.”It may require applying more than one technique on a single picture while masking the picture from its original background. Here, I am describing each technique in short:
Color Separation: In this method the background color of the picture has to be completely distinguished from the object color. If the hairs or furs color are black the existing background color has to be white or any other light color. If this technique works, the CMI Team will adjust the color of the picture in such a way that will intensify the difference between the background and foreground. After doing the color balance it will allow the expert designers to apply quick selection tool to select the object without harming any part of the picture.
Channel mask: This is an excellent shortcut masking technique. Here you have to see the picture view from each channel separately. Select the channel that represents the difference between the object and the background best and then do color balance like previous. When the color balance is provided press Ctrl + Click on the selected channel (windows) or cmd + click on the selected channel (Mac). It will make the selection properly. Then, apprehend the channel on an additional new channel layer that will create the alpha channel. Extract tool: Extract tool is also necessary for complex masking.. To apply the accurate tool just click filter>extract and customize the technique according to the picture. Then, highlight the edge of the picture and apply the action properly. It will erase the background and keep the foreground intact. The accuracy depends on the exact customization of the options while applying it on the image.
Background eraser tool: This is the most famous tool which used for Photoshop masking. In this situation you have to provide a clipping path around the solid area to remain it entire while applying the background eraser tool. This is quite subtle technique. If anything goes wrong the details of hair or fur will be lost. So while applying this technique you have to be very careful about the flying hair. Test the hairs or furs against both black and white background while processing to be sure that you are on right track.
