In Topic: Overlay As Mask

Sorry, Rosemarythyme! I am on PC, so for MAC you use OPTION instead of ALT.

 

Did you try scrolling through the blend modes on your layers palette? Usually, overlay or soft light will bring the texture and pattern of the mask through. You adjust the blend mode on the layer ABOVE the mask.

What program are you using?

 

In Photoshop/PSE:

 

If you just want to use one single mask (like if you just grab one PNG file) and you want to use it as a mask, you pull that PNG image into your layout.

Then you place the color or paper or photo in a layer directly ABOVE the mask. (For a color, you would just create a layer and use the paint bucket tool to 'fill' it with a single color.) Then with the layer ABOVE the mask active, use CNTRL+ALT+G for Photoshop or CNTRL+G for PSE. This will clip your top layer to the bottom layer.

 

To use the PSD template, drag the template into your program. Make a DUPLICATE of the template, so you can keep the original unchanged. (To duplicate, just go to IMAGE>DUPLICATE, then close the original file -- the duplicate would be called "Whatever the file name is called-copy." You can turn off any layers you don't want to use. Then, using the same directions above, "clip" your papers/color/photos to the layers.

 

Hope this helps!!
