In this Photoshop tutorial, we’ll learn the essentials of using clipping masks to hide unwanted parts of a layer from view in a document. Clipping masks are a lot like Photoshop’s layer masks in that both allow us to show and hide different parts of a layer, but clipping masks work differently.
Unlike layer masks, where we first need to add a mask to the layer and then paint or fill areas on the mask with black (to hide the area), white (to show the area) or gray (to partially hide the area), clipping masks simply use the contents and transparency of a layer to determine which parts of the layer above it remain visible. That may actually sound more confusing than layer masks when you first hear it, but as we’ll see, clipping masks are very easy to use. In fact, they can be faster and easier to use than layer masks! There’s so many possible uses for clipping masks in Photoshop that it would be impossible to cover them all in a single tutorial, so what we’re going to do here is cover the basics and essentials of how clipping masks work so you can take what you’ve learned and focus on the fun part – coming up with your own creative ways to use them!
A clipping mask is created using two layers of a Photoshop image. Transparent pixels in the bottommost layer act as a mask for the image on the layer above.
The easiest way to understand how clipping masks work is to try one yourself. Follow these steps to use a clipping mask to create text that looks like it’s cut from a photo:
