Photoshop Tips: Masking

In this video, I focus on a retouching technique known as masking, which involves isolating a portion of an image from the rest of a photo. Generally speaking, you use the masking technique when the image you’re trying to isolate has edges that aren’t well-defined. Though there are several different ways to mask an image, the process I use involves starting with the color channels palette, which will help you cleanly separate your image from its background.
