This is a very professional type of service. The image is photoshopped manually by applying the mask directly to the layer using soft and refined edges with the pen tool.
Alpha channel masking
The image where the object is isolated from the background is called Alpha channel. It is later edited by changing the highlights, color, contrast, exposure, warmth etc. This type of masking is called alpha channel masking. The photo size is smaller usually, for easy uploading and downloading. One colored background is best for such editing.
Fur and Hair masking
To separate the hair/ fur or soft edges of the object from the background neatly this type of masking is used. It is done using the pen tool and edited later after removing the background. It is a more effective method than clipping path.
Refine edge masking
In this type of masking, a quick selection tool is used for selecting the object accurately and removing the background neatly with soft and refined edges. The photo is edited later on to enhance it. It makes the hair, fur, fabrics, and edges look more natural.
Transparent object masking
The objects that have transparency of 0% to 5%, by which the background is visible, are masked using this method. It retains the reality of the photo.
Translucent/Semi-transparent object masking
The objects that have transparency of more than 5%, by which the background looks fuzzy, are masked using this method. It clarifies the image properly and makes it look more enhanced.
In this type of masking. The incompatible element of an image is selected using the quick selection tool and the background is removed using masking. Then the image is edited to make it look enhanced.
Masking an image across the edge but not from inside is said to be color masking. After separating the background of the image and selecting the layers of the image, the colors are changed which makes the photo look bright and colorful.
