  • Mask Pro 2.0

    Hello All,

    I retouch photos quite a bit now. I am wondering
    if someone could give me some info. on Extensis
    Mask Pro 2.0.

    Should it be bought, or do the new tools in 6.0
    and 7.0 make it obsolete?

    Hi Ken:

    Haven't used Mask Pro specifically. Have Knockout 2 in my collection. Even though I do quite a bit of mucking around with photos, I use KO very seldom. Other techniques work as well as (or sometimes better) for me.

    Is a trial / demo version available from Extensis? If so, I'd sure give it a road test.

    That said... If you do decide that Mask Pro is for you and you're not in a big hurry to get it, I see legit (and current) versions of it on show up at eBay from time-to-time [none at the moment, however] that ultimately sell at a fraction of retail.

    Not everybody is familiar (or comfortable) with eBay, so if you have questions, send me personal mail (PM - see link below) and I'll be glad to help.

      I have it and maybe it's because I haven't really learned all the fine points of it since I've only had it a couple months, but I really don't think it does all that much better than the extract tool in PS. Certainly not for the price of $200. It's supposed to be pretty good but like I said I couldn't get it to perform miracles.

        Mask Pro and removing advise
        by FCP

        I'm looking for solid advise on the subject of removing and replacing backgrounds.

        For starters, I am one who never ever thinks this looks natural and I can always spot it. Unless, it's composite work for advertising I'd rather do a reshoot. Clients ask 'can you please...

        When do you use a "Difference Mask'?
        by albatrosss
        Yesterday I did a tutorial from Katrin Eismann's "Restoring and Retouching". It was the first time I had attempted a Difference Mask. When I had completed the tutorial I wondered why that method was recommended since an additional selection was required using another selection tool. ...
