Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Using masks to limit filters, part of Learning Tiffen Dfx.
- As you work with an image…you have the ability to add masks.…Masks are precise ways to hide parts of the image…or part of the filter.…Let's take a look at a basic image here,…and we'll go deeper on masks a bit later.…In this particular image,…I'd like to add a spot color effect.…So I'll choose the black and white filter…but add a layer mask.…
You'll see several different options here.…For example, a spot gradient…could create a transition from the filtered area…to the non filtered area.…And remember, it's quite simple…to select a mask and just click the invert button…to reverse its results.…In this case leaving a colored area…that then faded out to a black and white image.…Let's clear that out.…
And add a new mask.…One of my favorite commands…is the easy mask option…which allows you to essentially draw…on the area you want to keep.…In this case, a green pencil or crayon…indicates the good areas of the image.…There we go.…
On the other hand, you take the red crayon…to paint the background areas in.…And you can do these with longer slash type strokes.…
