Softening the edges of masks
Softening the edges of masks, key lines
- Set up a filter set in the filter browser containing a gaussian blur with appropriate strength. Close filter browser.
- Select an appropriate brush along with the previously created filter set from the ‘Brush/filter’ pop up menu on the brushes palette.
- Now brush along the edges of a shape / key line to clean up and smooth the edges. Especially effective with pixelated 1 bit layers and masks.
NB. Remember to reselect ‘Brush’ from the Brush/Filter pop up menu to return to normal brush mode.
