Masking an image

Masks crop part of an image so that only a portion of the image appears through the shape of the mask. You can make a mask from a single path or a compound path. You can also import masks made in Photoshop files.

Creating compound paths and opacity masks

In this section, you’ll create a compound path from the flower pattern on the Flower layer and create an opacity mask from the compound path, so that the Background layer appears through the mask. Then you’ll adjust the colors in Pink Flower to contrast with the Background layer. You’ll also use an opacity mask that was created in Photoshop and saved as a layer mask.
