Protection masks

Before applying new colors, CODIJY converts all unprotected areas, including the areas with color and gradient masks, to grayscale. You can prevent CODIJY from processing some part of the image with the protection mask. 

How to Draw protection masks

You may outline the area and draw a few strokes within or cover it completely with the mask as shown in this demo example. For this select the Color Protection and increase the brush size. 

When do you use protection Masks?

First of all, the protection masks let you refresh colors of the color images or recolor individual objects in the color photographs, protecting the rest of the areas from recoloring like we did with the girl’s face and the background in this example.

You can also use them instead of the Decolor pen, protecting the areas you wish to preserve in the grayscale or sepia tones of the original.
