Masking - Pure And Simple (by Bluetac)

By BlueTac
Print View

This is the basics of ALL image editing and is essential in merging images. You will grow to love layers and loathe erasers...this will hopefully teach you why.

Page 1: Introduction

Ok, forget what you think you know about the eraser and history pallet and such. This is an introduction to layer masks, the only FULLY reversible way of showing and hiding parts of your image.



Now obviously you could quite easily use magic wand or such to select the background and delete it…but this won’t work with more complicated images. Stick with masks and not a lot can go wrong.

Please note this is my method of doings things, and doubtless there are other ways.

Easy peasy – next?
