Using the Quick Mask tool - Photoshop CS
http://www.icehousedesigns.com/tutorials/photoshop/quickmask.php
In another tutorial we discussed another way to work with color
masks in Photoshop
. Here is another way, using the quick
mask tool
, that you may enjoy using more than any other method.


Masking basically means to remove one section
of the image, and replace it with another color, or another image altogether.


In this tutorial we will be replacing the black
background below with a white one.


First open the image you wish to play with in Photoshop.
I choose this image:





Now we are going to make the mask.
Click on the button labeled "Edit in Quick Mask Mode" ( or press
Q on your keyboard ), and zoom in to any area that you are going to mask
out on your image. ( The area you are going to change ). In the case above,
we are removing the black background so we will be masking out that section.


So, to sum it up, use the pencil tool:



and a hard round brush:


( any size you feel comfortable with,
use smaller brushes for more detailed areas ), and start masking!




Don't freak out when
you see the color red when you are drawing around in your image, the color
red indicates the area of the image you are masking out.

Keep coloring the entire image as detailed an as
close to the image you want to save as possible. ( The better you apply
the mask the better the final image will look. ).



After you have completed the mask, return to standard
mode by clicking on the button that says "Edit in Standard Mode",
or by pressing "Q" on your keyboard again.


Your image will now look something like this:


The resulting image you have now is the area selected
in which you have NOT masked out ( in this case the guitar ). You can
now cut and paste the guitar onto any background you choose, or change
the background in this image. You can also inverse the selection to play
around that way. ( select->inverse ).


Sometimes when working in detail with masks, the
border areas of the image you saved may be a bit jagged. In this case
the smudge
or blur tool
may help you out.
