About This Class

Masking Options in Photoshop and Procreate are mysterious. Well, not any more. 

If you have worked with some of the most popular programs like photoshop or procreate, you have probably heard of the term “alpha channel”, “clipping mask”, “layer mask”. They are unique in many ways, which sometimes can be confusing, especially when they are used interchangeably to achieve the same effect.

In this class, we are going to take a closer look at each techniques, so that you can really understand the pros and cons of each method. For each lesson, I am going to give you a practical and well-rounded definition, as well as hands on examples, so that you would really experience deep learning, and apply each concept appropriately to your own work. At the end, I will also cover some case studies step by step. The goal is to get you more familiar with the tools. And we will walk through all the decisions together. So hopefully that will help you to be more comfortable using these techniques in your current or next project.
