Quick Masking Tips

Posted in , , ,

Quickly create and blend masks using ON1 Photo Raw. Use luminosity masks to easily blend filters and local adjustments onto your photos. Luminosity masks allow you to control your mask based on your photos bright and dark areas. Another easy way to blend a filter would be to use a color range mask. Color range masks allow you to create a mask using specific colors. Once you have a mask created, you can blend and refine it easily using the masking tools.

The chisel mask tool will help you refine your edge so that you don’t have any extra fringe or overlapping edges. Double click the icon itself to chisel the edge away around the entire mask. If you are having trouble refining your mask around sharp edges such as hair or trees, use the refine brush to help you blend the mask more naturally. The refine brush is perfect for tiny areas of tonal contrast and will help your mask look more realistic.

    very nice tuto !

    We need new selection tools in ON1 !

    We expect in a near future a better selection tool than a stroke in the sky which is either photoshop quick selection tool or, like topaz remask, the possibility to paint the border of subject in blue (compute region) and fill in with a paint bucket tool with green/red the zones we want to keep or remove.
    Everytime i try to brush the background in ON1 expecting a god selection, the subject is eaten.
    painting its border would say to selection tool where to stop.

    a mode overlay for brush would be nice too to refine mask by painting white without changing black…

    best regards
