Types of image masking in image processing

Sometimes, a designer or editor may encounter certain images that are hard to deal with. Extracting them from background may be a challenge. Minutest details like uneven hairs, hair on face, skin hair and wooden cloth etc. demand even more attention.

The former is fine till the edges are hard but when it comes to soft edges, Photoshop mask is the right technique to adopt.


Image masking


To carry out image masking services, adequate expertise is inevitable. Several masking types are there. Let us examine each.


Flesh and hair masking

Extracting of furs and hair is tough as the edges are soft and thinner. Considerable amount of effort, patience and time is needed to complete such jobs. With hair masking, flying, untied and frizzy hair etc. can be masked easily. Same is the case when it comes to flesh, most of the times.

Object masking when it’s translucent or completely transparent

Handling an object image that is transparent is critical as transparent mask is needed. Some of the objects that can be troublesome are plastic buckets, glass bottles, window shields and transparent cloths etc. Transparency has to be kept intact and it’s not that easy to get the correct and natural look.
