Title: Masking
Post by: jacksaben on October 23, 2018, 05:58:12 AM
Hello everyone, this is my first post ever on Inkspace forum.
I have been trying to mask a standup bag image and mask it to the a label which I created. But when I do the masking, the colours of the label becomes lighter than what they actually are.

Is there any reason why this might be happening?

I think what you want to use is Object/Clip.  Clip and mask seem similar except that mask lightens the remaining image and the bounding box remains the same, and clip doesn't fade the image and shrinks the bounding box to the clipped area.  I've always used clip and never mask so I'm not familiar with the ins and outs of mask.
