The Future of this Forum:

The Inkscape Project opened its first official forum on its website this month (August 2019). https://inkscape.org/forums/ In an effort to combine all the different forums into one, this forum will no longer be accepting new members or new messages. However, it will remain open for a little while, for existing members, to have access to their contents, if they need them.

Any potential new members should register on the new forum, and post their message there. There is a special board for questions about using Inkscape for cutting machines (of all kinds). (https://inkscape.org/forums/cutplot/)

If you have any questions or comments (and you're an existing member) you can post them here.

Although I've been planning to put this forum in read-only mode, at the time of this transition, unfortunately, my personal circumstances have changed, and I won't be able to host this forum much longer. I'm not sure about the time frame. It could be as soon as the end of 2019, or as long as a year from now. If anyone is interested in taking it over, please contact me.

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.
