Skill Level Beginner
- [Voiceover] Hi, I'm Chris Converse. And in this lesson, we're gonna take a look at how we can use clipping masks inside Photoshop to create non-destructive design effects for our composition. We'll clip photography into live-text layers. We'll apply effects onto the text layer, which will then be applied after the photography's been clipped in. And we're even gonna look at alternate ways to create silhouetted photography by combining the eraser tool and the paintbrush tool, along with clipping mask shapes. And, finally, we'll take a look at how we can add layer adjustments into clipping groups as well so that we can adjust only parts of our composition and not the entire canvas.
So I hope this sounds interesting and if so, let's get started.
