Masking Images

6 Comments

In Project 7, my Image Design students were asked to blur the background of an image while leaving the one part of the foreground perfectly clear. They used a technique called "masking" to pull this off. A mask is a special kind of layer that lets you hide or reveal previous layers.

Here is a video to help explain how to create this effect in Gimp...

I use Gimp for image editing. I use blur only on the background of the render. And i use C4D packs.
They always give life to it ^^

I wondered how you make a picture look like that. I will have to learn how to do that sometime or take that class.
