If you’re anything like me, you spend a lot of time online. Like myself, you’re probably also seeing way too many advertisements, many of which contain terrible crop jobs. My new years resolution is to uplift and help others more, and my first notable act of 2020 will be teaching ya’ll how to improve your masking game. Let’s get started…
Step 1 – Grab an image
Grab your image and chuck it in photoshop. Pexels have a ton of high-quality images you can use for free. Obviously I used google images for my example image but you probably, definitely shouldn’t (unless you’re just practising).
Step 2 – Select your object
Step 3 – Masking
Bonus Step – Color Replacement
After you use this method of cropping, your image may still be holding onto some of the colours of its original background. This will look quite obvious when you add a new background.
The finished product
With a few extra adjustments, of course.
