This topic assumes you have followed the basic lessons for mask creation.
This example will walk you through creating a mask that will super-impose one photo on another, like the
example shown at the top of this page.
Once this mask is created, it can be applied to many photos at once in PhotoELF's Batch mode, in the
main program. See: Batch Apply Masks
In this example, we will merge these two photos:
Load a picture into the Editor and apply a black circle mask:
Apply a black circle mask
To produce this image
Once you are back in the Editor, look in the Photo Effect tool panel and click the negative or invert colors
Click the Print button on the Editor's toolbar to load this image into the PPL print window. We will use the print window to merge this
photo into a white background canvas.
If you will be applying this mask to photos that are oriented landscape, then make sure the page layout is in landscape mode.
And vice versa, if you will be applying this mask to portrait photos, make sure the page layout is in portrait mode.
