How to Use OnOne Mask Pro 4.1.8 to Create Perfect Masks in Photoshop
OnOne Mask Pro 4.1.8 is a powerful Photoshop plugin that allows you to create masks based on color instead of edges. This makes it easier to isolate subjects and backgrounds, even in difficult cases such as hair, fur, or transparent objects. In this article, we will show you how to use OnOne Mask Pro 4.1.8 to create perfect masks in Photoshop.

To use OnOne Mask Pro 4.1.8, you need to have Photoshop installed on your computer. You also need to download and install the plugin from the official website[^3^]. After installation, you will find the plugin under the Filter menu in Photoshop.
Step 2: Open an Image in Photoshop
Open an image that you want to mask in Photoshop. For this example, we will use a photo of a woman with curly hair against a blue background.
Step 3: Duplicate the Background Layer
Duplicate the background layer by pressing Ctrl+J (Windows) or Command+J (Mac). This will create a copy of the original image that we will use for masking.
Step 4: Apply OnOne Mask Pro 4.1.8
Select the duplicated layer and go to Filter > onOne Software > Mask Pro 4.1.8. This will open the plugin interface where you can see your image and various tools for masking.
Step 5: Select the Keep Color Eyedropper Tool
In the toolbar on the left, select the Keep Color Eyedropper tool (the green one). This tool allows you to select the colors that you want to keep in your mask. Click on the woman's skin, hair, eyes, and lips to sample those colors. You can also adjust the tolerance slider at the bottom to increase or decrease the range of colors that are selected.
Step 6: Select the Drop Color Eyedropper Tool
Next, select the Drop Color Eyedropper tool (the red one). This tool allows you to select the colors that you want to remove from your mask. Click on the blue background to sample that color. You can also adjust the tolerance slider at the bottom to increase or decrease the range of colors that are selected.
Step 7: Refine Your Mask
After selecting the keep and drop colors, you will see a preview of your mask in the main window. You can switch between different views by clicking on the buttons at the top right corner. For example, you can see your mask as a grayscale image, as a red overlay, or as a composite with a new background.
If you are not satisfied with your mask, you can use other tools in the toolbar to refine it. For example, you can use the Magic Brush tool (the yellow one) to paint away unwanted colors while maintaining transparency. You can also use the Chisel tool (the blue one) to smooth out rough edges or remove halos.
Step 8: Apply Your Mask
Once you are happy with your mask, click on OK to apply it to your image. You will see that your duplicated layer now has a layer mask that contains your mask. You can hide or show the original background layer by clicking on its eye icon.
Step 9: Replace Your Background
If you want to replace your background with a different one, you can simply drag and drop another image onto your document and place it below your masked layer. You can also adjust its size, position, and opacity as needed.
