Image Masking Service Type

Layer masking:

Layer masking is an essential part of photo editing tools where the use of a layer mask gives the ability to work to hide and reveal portions of the layer without deleting them. It is a very practical and non-destructive process of editing images and it helps the photo editor to make images more innovative and creative. Before talking about layer musk, we are going to discuss the layer. The layer is an amazing and spiffy working tool in Photoshop. It helps us to edit photos without destroying the original image and by stacking images on other images where no pixels of those images get interacted or mixed. We can fix or delete them whenever we want. Now, we are going to Discuss the layer mask. It is one of the incredible features of the layer. Layer masking is one of the essential parts of the masking service. A layer mask can hide or reveal pixels of an image layer without deleting them. Without the support of the layer mask, we cannot conceal any part of the image. With the layer mask, you can change the visibility and make any portion invisible or partially visible.

Clipping mask:

The clipping mask is used to show and hide different parts of a layer and determine the visibility or transparency from one layer to another sheet to fit images into shape. At first, it may seem that the use of a clipping mask is similar to the layer mask. But eventually, after completing all the editing process, you will find the difference of layer mask and clipping mask. In the layer mask, the black and white color box in use to show and hide the parts of the layer. On the other hand, the clipping mask in use to control the transparency and opacity of one layer from another sheet. To work in a clipping mask, the editors need two or more layers. In one segment, the imagewhich you want to clip cover, and the other layer will be in where you want to show that image. Check that the image you want to use for a clipped mask should not be locked. Otherwise, you cannot work with it. Also, make sure that the image you want to use is at the top, and the other is at the bottom where you want to show the image. After that, we have to go for the clipping path. There are two main methods to create a clipping path. One is to right-click on the image and using the clipping mask option. Another is a shortcut where you have to hold the alter key and put the arrows sign between the two layers.

Alpha channel masking:

Alpha channel masking is a process and technique of removing or separating the background from an image by clipping path and save its alpha channel to apply color changes, filter and other effects on the images by painting tools, editing tools, filters and so on. Removing the background and setting up the images to another place is pretty much similar to the layer masking. Still, it is different and a little bit complex when you are doing the masking of fuzzy edges, furry clothes, hair, and so on. After all these things are complete, you have to customize some other things like making a color correction, changing the brightness or contrast, and making changes in some different essential settings. In the alpha channel, every image has three colors, which are red, green, and blue. It is called RGBA, where A means alpha channel. And in the alpha channel, white color is for visibility where the black color is for invisibility. The gray color refers to the quantity of the image. That is how much the image will be visible.

Transparent masking:

Image transparent masking or Transparency masking is significant and necessary for removing transparent images like glass type objects, car glass, water, bottle, a regular spectacle so on from their background. Transparent masking is very much helpful and applies when only the clipping path is not able and enough to separate from transparent images. All kinds of transparent images like glass, water bottle, etc. have 0%-5% opacity. So the light can easily pass through it. For that reason, transparency and visibility of color or background on the objects the transparency masking are used. As a professional specialist, we know our clients often have a high demand for quality images where an image may contain different background. We are experts at clearing the unwanted object, removing white background, and maintain the transparency of the object. We are always ready for you to provide our best services with high satisfaction.

Translucent object masking:

It may seem translucent object masking is pretty similar to transparent image masking. But it is pretty much different and challenging from transparent masking. In transparent images, the opacity is 0%-5%, and the light can pass through the pictures like glass, water, and on similar objects very quickly. On the other hand, in translucent images like plastic bottles, sunglass, polyester, fabric like muslin, frosted glasses, thin paper, and many other similar items, the opacity is 5%-100%. In the translucent image, the light may pass through the object, but the other side of the purpose may not be clear to see. It would be difficult to identify. In that case, translucent image masking is needed. We are the professionals and provide you the best. Again, we would like to say that our team is always available to serve you with the best service.

Fur and hair masking:

After removing or separating fur and hair parts from image backgrounds, you have to adjust it by using advanced Photoshop tools like pen tablet tools. The pen tablet tool is used for soft edges. This masking service used in the fur and hair parts is to give the image natural looks. A layer is separated from the other layer by adjusting the color, brightness, contrast, and soon. Fur and hair masking is a time-consuming process and complicated technique. It is usually done in an image manipulation system like in Photoshop or gimp. We have experienced and trained photo editor, who are professionals in creating best and quality images with Perfection. We design and customize images for your business so that you can promote your photo wherever you want. Many products and items photographs have furry and fuzzy edges, especially flying hair, animal rising hair, furry clothes, so on, where you will require advanced fur and hair masking.

Edges refine masking:

Sometimes images like furry dolls, animals, trees, fabrics, blanket, and so on have blurred edges. This kind of blurred boundaries destroys the images & natural view of others. We often take photos with friends or family or photo shoot with groups, and we may want to remove the background by adding a new one. In that case, a hair and cloth edges create the problem to edit the image. Which, in a result, becomes a complicated job. So we use the magic wand tool, lasso tools, and some other edges refine related tools after the layer mask to make the edges soft.

Color masking:

Color Masking or color range masking is the way to edit random colors to show different colors and styles on images by using color range tools. In color range tools, we find a lot of options to choose different colors like red, yellow, blue, and many others.

Image masking service is not necessary for all images. If your images have clear edges, no furry clothes or blurred objects, then you do not have to use the image masking. To resolve the problems mentioned above, you will require all kinds of image masking services.

Sometimes transparent images or translucent objects of an image need to be removed or replaced by transparent masking.

How to remove the background from an image with image clipping

Image clipping is just one method to remove the background from an image. If you want to learn how to do it yourself, check out our Photoshop tutorial about how to remove the background from a photo with hair.

In this technique, you place the subject of a photo on its own layer, and make the pixels surrounding it transparent. Isolating the image in this way allows you to place your product against another background in Photoshop, InDesign or on a website.

How to make an image have a transparent background with clipping paths

Once you have a perfect clipping path, you can make your background transparent using one of two methods:

  • If you will be placing your image in InDesign or Quark (such as in a catalog layout), you can convert the path to a Clipping Path so that the background will appear intact in Photoshop, but the background will be transparent when the image is placed in InDesign.
  • If you want your background to be transparent in all applications, you can convert your path to a selection, and then either delete the background or create an image mask from the selection.

Clipping path services at Clipping Path United

Our professionally trained graphic designers in Bangladesh have years of experience in providing clipping path and deep-etching services. We’re masters of Photoshop’s Pen Tool, which allows us to define highly precise clipping paths. We zoom in to your images by as much as 300% when drawing each clipping path. This enables us to have sufficient anchor points to retain the natural shape of the object. Having too many or too few anchor points can result in an inadequate cut-out of an image and images that don’t look real. Unlike many other deep-etching services, we don’t automate the clipping paths. We also steer clear of using tools such as Magic Wand for quick selection and path creation. We’ve seen, firsthand, the results of automation and tools and how it can hurt your reputation and your brand. Today’s consumers demand quality, and so do we at Clipping Path India. We pride ourselves on the quality of the finished product — no matter how many images you need edited.
