image Masking Services
Masking or image masking is a very modern image manipulation technique. With this technique, one part of a photo can be alienated from the other parts of the photograph where the edges are not that different. When a photo has a lot of details like a peripheral blur, translucent glass, and extremely thin parts, for example, flying hair - clipping path becomes difficult to use. That's where image masking service comes into the play.
Types of Masking We Provide
The masking of image or image masking is a complicated and time-consuming process in Photoshop. And the process has different types of masking which different company likes to use different ones. We provide various kinds of masking for different types of jobs, and we use a masking tool depending on the situation we have. iClippingPath offers many different types of masking services which includes but not limited to:
Masking with retouching service
Transparent Layer Masking
When people refer to masking in Photoshop, they usually refer to the layer mask. It’s the most used mask tool in Photoshop by most expert image editing service providers. Using masking we can hide or reveal portions of the images, or we can change the opacity of the various portions as well. Changing the opacity of a layer from the layer panel’s slider will change the opacity of the whole image.
iClippingPath possess the necessary tools and experienced team of graphic designers to do any type of masking. We can change the visibility of the image with the layer mask. And we can make any part of an image completely visible or invisible. For example, if you want to hide a portion of a picture, we can paint with the black on the mask. And that part of the photo will be totally transparent. In short, it will make visible the layer/s beneath. The image will be partially transparent if we paint with grayscale colors. The transparency will depend on the % of gray we chose for the brush. If we choose a soft brush, then the edge transformation will be smoother.
In short, you can hide any unnecessary part of your photo and display the portion you want with this service. And the best part of image masking service is that you can undo the changes anytime you want if it’s required.
While the layer mask uses a single layer to hide a portion of an image clipping mask uses multiple layers. It uses one layer to determine the transparency or visibility of another layer. We place a layer at the bottom of the layer we want to apply transparency with clipping mask. Many may think that what we’re doing is entirely contradictory to the layer mask.
For layer mask, we use black color on the mask to make the pixel of the layer invisible. And with clipping masking, we’re doing the opposite. If the bottom layer has some pixel that area the top layer will be visible. In turn, if the bottom layer doesn’t have any pixel, the top layer will be transparent or invisible.
Alpha Channel Masking
If a photo has fur or hair, it becomes more difficult and time-consuming to mask those areas with just brush strokes. But if the object and background have enough contrast using alpha channel masking becomes easier. This technique reasonably complex compared to other masking services.
We use the channel palate to see which channel gives the most contrast when working with this masking. If it’s the blue channel, we duplicate the channel and apply level on it to increase the contrasts sufficiently. We can also paint black the inner portion of the new blue channel to make it black. And we can make it inverse to make the black to white and white to black.
Hair masking is one of the most popular image masking techniques, and it’s used to remove tiny objects from a photo. This technique can also be used to remove minute grooves and unnecessary portions of the background from an image. The service is especially advantageous while editing photographs of live models or fashion related photos. Therefore, hair masking is very popular with photographers and large corporations.

For example, an image with a shiny house. We can make a bright house dimmer just by brushing the area with a gray color.
