How We’ve Simplified Masking

Compared to Photoshop, Mask AI doesn’t need tedious brushwork to get a high-quality mask. And there’s no need to learn complicated icons and tools. With Mask AI you only need to roughly outline your subject in blue, one click fills what you want to cut, one click fills what you want to keep, and press “Compute Mask”. It’s really that simple. Our neural network has been trained to distinguish tough edges, so you can get a great mask on the first attempt.

Masking Made Simple For Every Type of Photo

Mask AI incorporates machine learning for a more accurate mask with less refining required!

Mask AI's Unique Trimap Technology

It can be a pain to make a good cut-out in Photoshop, and it can take up an entire day’s work. Mask AI’s intuitive color-coded system reduces it to 4 simple steps: keep, cut, compute, and replace.

1

Outline your subject in blue

2

Fill areas to cut with red

3

Compute and refine as needed

4

Replace the background

How It Works

Brush to compute.

Simply paint a blue line around the edges of what you’d like to compute. The best part is, you don’t have to be perfect — just keep a little bit of the subject and the immediate area you’d like to mask inside of it. Our technology will do the heavy lifting.

Select the red fill button to fill the area you’d like to remove and fill any areas to keep with green. Select either AI or Contrast mode to generate your mask! AI is the ideal mode for more complex masking, like trees, hair, fur, or any image containing a lot of details. This mode will be slightly slower. The Contrast mode is a faster, rougher mode, but may perform better in images with little contrast separation between foreground and background.

Pro-Tip: With the new “Auto” button, you can let Mask AI auto-detect your subject and create a trimap for you as a quick starting point!  

Brush to refine

Our smart brushes (Cut, Keep, and Compute) utilize our technology and enable you to make clean and accurate refinements without the pressure of painting perfectly. Our machines will make the decisions for you and speed up your workflow!

Slide to perfect.

Use the post-processing sliders to perfect your mask quickly. The Edge Softness slider comes in handy if you want to add more sharpness to a rocky landscape, or perhaps soften the edges for a portrait. 

  • The Edge Softness slider comes in handy if you want to add more sharpness to a rocky landscape, or perhaps soften the edges for a portrait.
  • The Edge Shift slider shifts the mask edge in either direction.
  • The Foreground Recovery slider revives the color of your foreground in weaker or more transparent areas. This can be a great tool for fur, whiskers, or wispy hair.
  • The Defringe slider desaturates the edges of your mask to help with color contamination and bleeding.

Replace the background to finish.

Being a great photographer requires a lot of techniques and tools at your disposal. You’ve planned and executed with military precision to get the shot. But when nature gives you a less than perfect sky or an undesirable background, Mask AI’s background replacement lets you take back control of your work. 

Blur the background, or select a new image or a solid color for a completely new look. You can also adjust both the background or foreground, or your composite image to create a beautifully blended photo.

Tricky Masks Made Easy With Mask AI

Flyaway hair. Feathers. Fur. Willowy trees. There will always be complex masking tasks, but with Mask AI’s machine learning technology, you’ll never have to agonize over the details. Our application will do the heavy lifting!
