About This Class

When you want to isolate certain areas in your image, do as the professionals do—use Masking.

Sure, Photoshop’s got all the obvious tools like the Magic Wand or Lasso, but using these to select your objects just takes too much time and unnecessary effort, not to mention the selection will end up looking amateurish and unrealistic. Maximize your results when selecting areas of your photo by using the best Masking techniques Photoshop has to offer.

I’ll make sure to cover all the details for the tools and palettes used. We’ll start out simple with Selections Tools, and slowly, we’ll start increasing the complexity. Upon applying what you’ve learned, you’ll be surprised at how drastically your work will improve. No more sloppy selections!
