Image Masking

Alpha channel masking|Translucent Object Masking | Background cutout 

Image masking is helpful in removing the background from images that have subjects with hair or fur. The fine details of the individual hairs and furs make it difficult to perform background removal with clipping path, so advanced Photoshop skills and techniques are essential.

As you might imagine, meticulous image masking requires a lot of patience, skill and time. But the labor-intensive task is worth the effort — each strand of hair accounted for in the finished image. We begin with hand-drawn clipping paths along straight edges, and then get to the more advanced work of preserving the finer details.

 
 

If you want to do it on your own, play around with some of the Photoshop tools and techniques available to you. The background eraser tool, magic eraser tool and the color separation technique — or a combination of more than one — can all help you achieve the perfect photo for your clients or online store.

It’s important to remember to remain consistent with the other product photos on your website or seller profile. And especially if you’re selling on a third-party site like Amazon or eBay, it’s essential to abide by their product photo guidelines. (We’ve created a reference to product photo requirements for online marketplaces to get you started.

WHY CLIPPING PATH PHOTO EDIT?

Who needs image masking services?

Image masking allows photographers to isolate the product and remove any distractions from the frame. It also helps create a uniform, consistent look to all product photos for your clients or your brand, both digital and print.

Whether you have a single image or a huge batch from your latest photoshoot, professional image masking services can help you focus on what really matters in your business: getting more high-value clients.
