1. Make Custom Clipping Masks

Use one or more brushes from the ArtPlay Palette BrushSet to create a mask for your photo.

  • Stamp the brushes on New Layers and re-position as preferred using the Move Tool from the Tools Panel.
  • Select the layers in the Layers Panel then go to Layer> Merge Layers to create the custom clipping mask.
  • This is a great way to use the ArtPlay Palette brushes AND create a mask that is perfect for your photo.
