Masking

The term Masking is used to describe the process of extracting one or more objects of an image from the background. Photo or image masking is usually used when the edges of the objects are not sharp enough or not well defined and when the pen tool is not an adequate solution to extract the object from the background, such as hair, fur, feather or transparent objects. We use different masking tools to extract an object from its background.

In many cases photo or image masking is also used for creating color correction masks. As the name suggests, masks hide or show parts of an object or image in order to change the colors or do further image editing work of the selected objects, i.e. color correction or other retouching and image editing work.

Besides masking, ProfiMasking can also do professional coloring of your products after creating the masks. Our team can seamlessly change your product colors in the way you want.

Masking, Coloring and adjusting textures and profiles of your product images:

The demand for changing product colors is very high, esp. when the product or product line consists of many colors or fabrics.

ProfiMasking masking services change the colors, fabrics or texture of your products/images. Simple color change of the products is relatively easy with color correction masks. However, in most cases you need professionals because not only colors but also textures/fabrics need to be changed. Our coloring experts will help you to achieve perfect results with their special skills and experiences.
