Masking & Creative Compositing

Posted in , ,

Tagged with , , , , , , , ,

Learn how to create a stylistic composite using the AI Quick Mask Tool inside ON1 Photo RAW 2019. First we will mask out our background from our subject. We can use this as our guide when we are blending layers together. Then we will use our Masking Brush to remove and add different textures onto our composite. From there we will top off the photo with some birds for a creative flare. Lastly we will merge the layers together into a New Stamped Layer and stylize with a LUTs Filter.

    Thanks Dylan, this and your Using Effects Creatively look like they’ll be fun to work with and helpful in learning to use On1. Is there any chance you could add brief written steps to these videos like the recipes in In the Kitchen or the Looks series? Those are a great learning resource.

      Hey Ann,

      Here is a link to our Looks page where you can find the written instructions for this one and more :)

      This one is a tad different than the one on the looks page but the masking and compositing process is the same. Thanks for watching!

    Very useful, thanks. I agree that written notes would be useful. Even if it required a paid subscription.

      This one has a tad different end result than the one on the looks page but the masking and compositing processes are the same.

    I tried it with a bland sky to replace with trees in part of the sky and found it to be very slow after selecting apply. Nowhere near as fast as the old Quick Mask tool. Also, I had trouble using the Refine tool to add the trees in the sky properly. Is there a demo that shows how to use it for best results?

    Great video but like others I need a written recipe to learn and help me remember later when it has been a while since I have done one if I ever learn to do it. I don’t see any reply’s to these comments, anyone home?

    I am not very good at learning via videos and find that comprehensive printed manuals are my preferred way to learn, and I’m certain there are many others who feel as I do. There are many great books available for learning Photoshop, but next to nothing for other capable photo editors, i.e. On1 Photo RAW 2019. Is there a possibility that On1 can authorize/initiate a printed manual for purchase? Otherwise, my copy of Photo RAW will continue to go largely unused.

    The mask created was very basic, but adequate for the purpose of the composite.
    What would be good to show is how to obtain an accurate mask on a difficult subject with intricate detail retained.

      Our next couple webinars will focus more on masking out difficult areas and how to refine. Those will be posted later today if you would like to register! You can register at www.on1.com/webinars
