Free photo clipping mask

So we are on day 4 of Jessica Spraque's free photo editing class. Today she is explaining how to use a photo clipping mask. I gave a clipping mask away a while back, but while making the first one I had made 4 different versions. Here is an example of #2.

mask #2

I just love clipping mask. I always tend to add a small bevel to mine, changing my bevel to size 1.
If I have a paper or light background, I will also add a slight drop shadow. Together they tend to add a nice effect. So for your download pleasure... I give you my second mask. Have Fun!!
If you scroll down a bit to the first one. I have directions posted on how to use it.

Have you subscribed today??
sorry, time is up

Happy Thursday!

Kim, thanks for the download. I found you on the JS class forums. Love your blog, I'm def bookmarking it. By the way, I see you're from Lafayette! I'm originally from the Baton Rouge area but moved up north a few years ago. I miss it lots, but I hear it's been really hot and dry down there.

Janna said...

Found your blog on JS forums. Wow!! I'm amazed by your stuff. I will have to spend a lot of time here reading your archives. You have shared so much! I have a quick question, though. I saw a post about downloading textures from a flickr site. I'm not that computer savvy. Do you have to download the textures one photo at a time? Or is there a way to do all of them at once into a folder? Thanks! I appreciate all you have shared.

Thanks, Kimi. I love your frames.

kimi kreations said...

Janna.... yes you have to do them one at a time. Download the ones you like to your desktop. Then create a new folder for your textures. Open it and drag your downloaded textures in the folder.

Remember to leave him a thank you. =)

Kimi,

Thanks for the share, your mask is neat! How do you make them? Or is that a question for the Sprague website. I am new here also.

Kimmer.... you can ask anything you like here. I will have to keep that in mind and work a tutorial on making a mask. :)

Thanks so much for the mask. I, too, just found you on the JS forums and have subscribed. I've no doubt that your generosity and talent will find its way around the Digital Scrapbooking community. I hope it turns your blog into the empire that the Spraground has become! Lots of luck!

krista said...

i am a total rookie at all this stuff. but i love your site. i have one question on this mask though. when i downloaded it, it was a white mask instead of black. how do i make it black, or am i beyond help at this point?

Janna said...

Thanks for answering my questions. And thank you for the mask download. I think I'm starting to get how masks work, so now I'm going to download yours and see what I can do with it. Thanks again. I really appreciate that you took the time to answer my questions and all the time you have put into your blog. It has obviously taken you a very, very long time to share this with everyone else.

Beverly said...

thank you

kimi kreations said...

krista.... it should be black?
but the color of a mask does not matter because you are clipping it to your image, it becomes the color of you image. Does that make sense? The color you have under it will be your extra color. Scroll down to my first mask post, I have a screen shot.

Michelle, yes the first mask has expired. I love sharing with my subscribers but when the freebie sites find me and start sending the entire internet over, I take down the link. Normally I will leave a freebie link up for 24 hours. I am leaving the mask link up a little longer and the link to the pink papers are still active. Hopefully you subscribed so you don't miss anything in the future. :)

Janna... I always try and find time to answer questions. you are most welcome!

Kimi, thank you so much for sharing this awesoe mask! I love the way it looks on your picture.
When I tried using it, the edge is white though. I'd love for it to looks black like your water lily photo. Is that like an optional thing to change?

I love your site!!
