Hair Masking in PhotoShop

Hair or Fur Masking is the process to remove unwanted Hairs/furs from an image. Not only hairs or furs, but Any kind of miniature detail from an image can also be removed throughout the Hair Masking Process

Layer Masking in Photoshop

When it comes to masking in photoshop, a layer mask is the first thing we often have to use. By using Layer Mask we can hide or reveal our preferred portions of a photo or we can change the opacity of various portions of an image. The Layer mask process also lets us change the visibility of the layer. That means we can make a specific portion visible or invisible when we need it.

Transparent Clipping Mask

Wanna make a specific portion of your image transparent? It’s possible accurately through the Transparent Clipping Mask Service. Photoshop allows us to change the opacity of a whole image by the layer panel’s opacity slider. When the opacity is imbalanced or broken then we need to use this feature.

Alpha Mask

When we feel the need to mask out the furry or hairy areas of our image, it becomes very tough to select those areas of hair or fur just by the brush strokes. It is necessary to increase the contrast of a photo before we apply Alpha Mask. By having adequate contrast it becomes easier to apply Alpha Mask on a photo

How does Image Masking work in Photoshop (Basic Concept for Beginners)

Photoshop is the Best Photo Masking Software. I know there are other tools available out there on the Internet for Masking but those free tools often make it hassle and cumbersome.

Whereas, Photoshop is built-in with inclusive advanced tools dedicatedly for Image Masking. The photoshop masking techniques are efficient and easy to use.

Let’s see How the famous types of Image Masking Work through Photoshop

1| Layer Photo Masking

When the black paint of photoshop is applied manually on the mask that portion will be transparent. The image will be partially transparent when we will use grayscale color, but it depends on the percentage (%) of gray we choose for the brush. We can make the edge transformation smoother if we select a soft brush to paint the mask.

2| Image Clipping Mask

A clipping mask is a one layer process to determine the transparency or visibility of another connected layer. In the case of Clipping Mask, we simply place a new layer at the bottom of the layer where we are gonna apply transparency. And from the newly created bottom layer, we control the visibility of the above layer.

It may seem a little tough for beginners to compare the difference between the behavior of the clipping masks and layer masks. You may think that the clipping mask works inversely when compared to the Layer Mask.

But the exception between them is only using the black paint on the mask to make the pixels of the layer invisible for the Mask, the top layer will be opaque or visible if the bottom layer is containing some pixels in that area.

And in case if the bottom layer doesn’t have any pixels then the layer of the top will be transparent or visible.
Image Clipping Mask also works great for hair masking images HD

3| Image Alpha Channel Masking

Every image is different to cut out operations like Background Removing. That’s why different images require different approaches to work on the background. And Alpha Channel Masking is a bit different and complex way of image masking. The above two ways (Layer Photo masking & Image Clipping Mask) of masking is still simple but Alpha Channel Masking is comparatively more.

If the object or background of your photo has a sufficient amount of contrast then it will be easier to apply the alpha channel mask and if the background doesn’t have adequate contrast then we have to increase it and edit the image to apply the alpha channel mask.

How Alpha Channel Works

Wondering how to alpha mask in photoshop?
Briefly, To apply this method of masking we have to see which channel gives the most contrast and for that we’ll have to use Chanel Palate. If the palate is the blue channel we simply make a duplicate copy of that channel and apply some level to that to increase the channel sufficiently. If it becomes necessary we can paint over the inner portion of the new channel with black color to make it completely black. Then we go to the next step where we inverse the channel to make the white to black and black to white. Then we copy the created and customized channel and paste it into the layer tab for making a new layer.

In this case, we can use the dodge and burn tools to make the edge portion more contrasting and in this way, it will help us to apply Alpha Channel with perfection (making the edge fur/hair more black for ease of use).

An advantage in this step is you can also apply the “color Decontaminate” feature from the Layer>Matting>Color Decontaminate of your menu. We have noticed that sometimes with this option we get an amazing result.

Before applying color decontaminate directly we should make a copy of the layer for safety. Because this is a destructive process. So, this was a brief discussion about Alpha Channel Masking to give you some idea about this cumbersome process. There is a renowned proverb that, one dollar saves means one dollar earned. And with us, you can expect to save up to 30% of your money. If you have any concerns or queries, please comment down below or send an email to discuss further.
