What is vector masking ? how can use it?
Using Vector Masks
Let's look at the
different ways that a vector mask can be used, created, and/or edited:
· Add a vector mask that shows or hides
an entire layer
· Add a vector mask that shows only the
content inside the shape that has been created by a path
· Edit a vector mask that is already
· Remove, disable, or enable a vector
· Convert a vector mask to a layer mask
(rasterize the vector data)
· To add a vector mask that hides or
shows an entire layer, select the layer from the Layer palette that you want to
add the vector mask to. Choose Layer>Add Vector Mask>Hide All or Reveal All. (If these
are grayed out, make a copy of the layer first.)
· To add a vector mask that shows the
contents of a shape, select the layer to apply the mask to in the Layers
palette, select the path from the Paths palette, and choose Layer>Add
Vector Mask>Current Path.
· To edit a vector mask, click the
vector mask thumbnail in either the Layer or Paths palettes. Edit the mask
using the Shape or Pen tools.
· To delete a vector mask, select it and
choose Layer>Delete Vector Mask.
· To enable or disable a vector mask,
select it and then choose Layer>Enable Vector Mask or Layer>Disable Vector Mask.
· To convert a vector mask to a layer
mask, choose Layer>Rasterize>Vector Mask.
