In this week's blog post, we will be looking at Mask Modes in the Urban Jungle Photo Editor. Masks allow us to make specific selections on individual layers. Masks can be used to hide or reveal certain areas on a particular layer.
First set up the layer you want to work within the Mask mode. Let us place a giraffe on this beach as our starting layer.
After placing the layers we want to work with, click on the Mask Mode icon at the top of the screen to open the Mask mode menu.
The first mask mode tool is the Erase tool. Click on the eraser icon at the bottom left to select the erase tool. After the selection has been made, just touch and swipe areas on the regions of the layer you want to erase.
The eraser works like a brush and erases just parts of the selected layer that are in the path of your finger. You don’t have to worry about the erase tool affecting other layers. It will only affect the selected layer.
As the name suggests, the Restore will reverse any changes made to the selected layer. Simply select the restore tool and in a similar fashion to the eraser just drag your finger across the regions of the layer you want to restore.
There is another way to revert changes, it is by the undo options at the top of the screen. The left icon allows you to go back one change meanwhile, the right icon will take forward one change. This way you don’t have to start from scratch if you make a mistake.
