Mask Pro 4 Review
Let’s say you have a picture of friend with unruly hair or a furry coat. As long as there’s sufficient contrast between the subject and its background, creating a mask is a cinch. Using a familiar eyedropper tool you select a range of colours in the image you wish to keep. Next, you switch the Drop tool to select colours you want to mask off. To remove the background you then simply paint it out. You may have to go back and make some adjustments to get your selection right; the tool will remove busy background elements, leaving your foreground intact. As you paint you can audition your new background with a key press.
With some images you can skip the painting stage altogether and double click on the paint tool instead. This automatically makes a mask for you using the colours you originally chose. If the automated process doesn’t quite cut, simply select additional colour in the areas that remain unmasked and reapply. That’s not all though. There’s Mask Pro Select too – a tool that enables you to create Pen Tool selections just as easily by simply tracing around the edges of objects.
Once you’ve tried Mask Pro, you’ll never want to go back to the old way of making masks and selections.
