Masking works through the principle of "overlays" - this means that you will use layer after layer of images applied to the bottom layer which is the background. The reason you have to use multiple layers is that each layer will allow you to apply a different effect onto the background to see how it looks. For example, if your bottom layer is a background picture of a white sandy beach, you can then apply the next layer which may be in the shape of a boat. What makes it special is that you can put a particular design within the borders of the boat shape that will look good when you apply it to the background beach setting.
If you are into image editing with computer software, one technique that you may have come across is "masking". Masking allows you to create special effects in your image editing project so that you come up with a very unique final product.
Once you have found the right layer to place on the background, you can then proceed to the next "mask" or layer.
This layer could be very different from the previous layers. It doesn’t need to have the same realism. Let your artistic sensibilities have fun with this. For instance, the boat shape in the second layer could be partially transparent so that it looks like it is floating on the background beach image. With the right image editing software, you can literally let your imagination fly.
However, as with many other image editing techniques, it takes time to learn how each software will work to allow masking. This is why some people may opt to hire an image editing company - they may not have the time, energy, talent and resources to manage their own image editing project by themselves.
