Linda, I have merged the topics so it's all in one place.  I think I know what I did wrong when I tried it so going to give it another go.  Be back soon!!

Something like these?  I don't know if they are what you are looking for, but I've had a lot of fun working on it!!
The original mask conversation started in Sheryl's thread for safely searching Google.

I've started to look into it also, but so far not really to mention.
It was very easy in PI and I also have lots and lots of masks.

I too would love to learn how to use a mask in AD in the way we did it in PI and PSP.  I have close to 200 masks and used them a LOT prior to AD.  I miss that ability.  I did try a few things but couldn't find a way to do it.  Below is what I would like to achieve using a mask.


In PI, it's a simple thing.. just drag the mask over the image, convert to object, and you're done. So, any ideas on how to do this in AD?

Ahhh... that works!  I clicked on the image, not the document which is why I couldn't find it.  It does a very nice job of  it too!!  I like the results but it's still more awkward to use than PI.  The difference is, PI lets me open all the images at once whereas AD makes me place each one.   I like that AD auto converts them all to gray scale upon import so  those two things even out.  In PI, I have to convert each one separately. 

The biggest problem with AD now would be an efficient way to save each image.  In PI, I only  have to click "close" to close the entire program and it will ask me if I want to save each image to which I just sit and click Yes and it saves using the same name.

With AD,  it wants to save the entire document and not each individual image. To do that, I have to export, then select "without background" and then give it a new name.   If I could find a way around that, it would be nice!!  Here's an example of how AD converts an image:   The gash is looking better today.  I held it together with bandaids until it started to heal.  Was sick most of yesterday (jittery inside) but slept almost all day and night. Today, I can type again without pain and am on the mend.

Oh dear, sorry you didn't have much success Teejay. Not sure if it can be done.

Yes, the masking we used to do in PSP....sort of transparent edges. I'll give it a go over next couple of days see if I have more luck.

Linda, that's one way of doing it but what I have in mind is where the edges are fade to transparency. Yours result is lovely by the way. 

Thanks both.

I don't know if this is what you are looking for or not.  I made a frame, very basic, and just used black.  Saved as a png without the background.  Placed it on my photo and I did have to clip it, but I used the erase blend mode.  It's not quite like a mask in PSP, but it worked.

i have been at this for four hours and i am still no nearer to applying a mask as we know it.
the masks i can get to work  are more ar less a clipping to an image.

i hate to say this but i (me) cannot do it..i am sure it must be do-able but i am not that clever
maybe someone els can show us.
rege  knew something about masks ..when i see him i will tackle him from behind and squeeze the info out of him....lol

sorry shez.
