Mask


Information

Turn an opaque image into a translucent one quickly and easily.  Open or paste an image.  Select the mask style (dark, light or both) and watch as dark colors become translucent shades, and bright colors opaque.  Save the image as a PNG.  That's it.

Free to use, fully functional, portable software program, with no installation or setup.  Your existing computer libraries/files remain unchanged/unmodified.  We take pride in this respect function.

Tip:
Mask is portable and will run from within the folder you download it to.

Playing around with various masking styles and options can produce quite different results.  The clouds are translucent and allow color to show through.
