Creating Masks

Masking is the technique that uses the shape of one object as a contour to crop—or clip—other objects. Only those parts of the objects in the mask are visible. A stencil is a type of mask that allows you to add color within the mask. (See "Bitmapped or Grayscale Masks" on page 214 for another way of working with masks.)

Tip

Masks don't have to be limited to single objects. The compound objects created by the Join command can also be used as masks.
