Masking Photos on PosterMyWall just became a cinch!
Whether you're creating a cute family poster or designing flyers for your next party, erasing the background of photos (or applying a Mask for the graphic design savvy) always gives your design that extra bit of pizzaz. You've always been able to Mask photos on PosterMyWall. In fact, it is one of our most used Poster Maker effects. So when we recreated the Poster Maker from scratch we paid special attention to making Masking easier and more useful.
Professional image quality
Gone is the Magic Eraser which although pretty awesome, used to result in empty pixels around the subject. Now you can simply click points around an object and the Poster Maker uses complicated mathematics (and a tiny bit of magic) to make the outline snug around the subject. This results in masked images that look incredibly smooth and professional.
Easy as 1-2-3
When creating points around an object don't worry if you make a mistake. You can easily drag and move points around to create the perfect outline. You can also undo and redo your actions, even after saving the Mask. And if you're masking on a phone or tablet, we make points a bit bigger so they're easier to grab.
Tip: Always zoom in when masking, it makes for a super accurate outline.
Straight lines for blocky objects
By default the masking tool joins points with smooth curves that follow a path around the object. This is great when you're masking photos of people. But if you're masking something with more straight edges than curves, like a building or a car, switch to using straight lines by clicking the Joints button. This will give you a more accurate Mask.
