Join Bert Monroy for an in-depth discussion in this video Using clipping groups, part of Creating Dreamscapes in Photoshop: 1.
In quite a few of the movies, I use clipping groups to mask out parts of a layer.…Here, I want to explain what a clipping group is.…I have here three layers, red, green, and blue. Each one is set on a transparent background.…There is the red, there is the green, and there is the blue.…Now, right now they are on top of each other.…I am going to use the red layer as the clipping group for the other two.…What's going to happen there is that these guys will be confined to the live area of…the red layer, the live area where the actual pixels are not taking into account what's…going on in back with the transparency.…
This will also take into account transparency along the edges for the anti-aliasing.…It will take all that into account in preparing how these things are masked.…Now, I am going to do it the way I do it throughout this series, and that is by the shortcut.…I simply hold down the Option key and press between them.…Now, if I don't hold the Option key, you see that the little hand is going up and down…
