Photoshop masking is one of the photo editing techniques used to extract an object from its original background like a clipping path does. Clipping path and image masking are two different techniques, though both serve the same purpose. Usually, clipping is applied to cut out the images with a solid and precise edge. At the same time, Photoshop masking technique isolates the pictures with a subtle edge like hair, fur, leaves, etc.


There are several methods of accomplishing Photoshop image masking service. It includes the color separation technique, channel mask, extract tool, background erase tool, etc. The strategy varies based on the complexity of an image. It may require applying more than one technique on a single shot while masking it from its original background. Here, I am describing each method in short:

Color Separation:

In this method, the background color must be different from the subject's color. If the hair or fur color is black, the background color must be white or any other light color. If this method works, the DTP will adjust the color of the image in such a way that it will intensify the difference between the background and foreground. Finally, the designers apply quick selection tools to select the object without harming any part of the image. It makes smooth and professional extraction without damaging the hair or fur.


Channel mask:

Channel mask is an excellent shortcut hair masking technique. Here, you have to see the image view from each channel separately. Select the channel that best represents the difference between the object and the background. Then do color balance like previously. Now, press Ctrl + Click on the selected channel(windows) or cmd + click on the selected channel (Mac). It will make the selection correctly. Then, capture the channel on an additional layer that will create the alpha channel. Working with a channel mask is more complicated than the color separation technique.

Extract tool:

The extract tool is also quite effective for complex hair masking. To apply the extract tool, click filter>extract and customize the option according to the image. Then, highlight the edge of the image and use the action. It will erase the background and keep the foreground intact. The accuracy depends on the proper customization of the options. The designers need to be very expert and experienced to do well with auto extraction tools in Photoshop.

Background eraser tool:

The background eraser tool is the most famous tool used for Photoshop masking. In this case, you must create a clipping path around the solid area. It keeps the object intact while applying the background eraser tool. It is quite a subtle technique. If anything goes wrong, the details of hair or fur will be lost. So while applying this technique, you must be careful about the flying hair. Test the hair against both black and white backgrounds. It will ensure quality work without losing the flying hair or fur.


Of course, Photoshop masking service is a tricky photo editing task. It requires particular expertise. One can quickly know the methods, but it’s not that easy to apply in practice to bring world-class quality. Here, the designers must ensure every detail of the ticky or blurry edge-like hair.
