Exploring on your own

Now that you know how to place and mask an image in an Illustrator file, you can place other images and apply a variety of modifications to the images. You can also create masks for images from objects you create in Illustrator. For more practice, try the following:

  • In addition to adjusting color in images, apply transformation effects (such as shearing or rotating) or filters or effects (such as one of the Artistic or Distort filters/effects), to create contrast between the two images in the flower pattern.

  • Use the basic shapes tools or the drawing tools to draw objects to create a compound path to use as a mask. Then place the Flower1.psd image into the file with the compound path, and apply the compound path as a mask.

  • Create large type and use the type as a mask to mask a placed object.
