Masking: For demanding sophisticated postprocessing
This is an extension of the standard cutout. During processing, we make sure that your pictures look perfect on just about any background. You receive an open file that contains all path and transparency data, so you can place your product pictures—manually or by using software—on the background of your choice.
For filigree components whose edges are not sufficiently defined (e.g. hair, fur, branches, leaves, smoke), alpha masks are used.
Upon request, we mask every color area separately, so you can easily generate color variations of your products in-house.
Pictures with hair, fur, branches, leaves, smoke etc. cannot be cut out along clipping paths, and will, therefore, be processed with alpha masks.
These masks contain transparency and color data. They allow these pictures to look clean in all backgrounds, without any pixel loss. We deliver graphics in psd, tif, or png format for further manual or software-based processing.
