Mask Images

On of the nice features of Swift Publisher is the ability to apply image masks. These masks add a nice effect to an otherwise boring image.

Masks are a way to hide an area of the screen to produce some type of effect.

To use a Mask in Swift Publisher, simply select an image then under the Inspector panel, select the appearance, and then choose Mask.

Create Your Own Mask

If you don't find the mask design that you're looking for, you can create your own mask. Simply create a black/white image and import it as an image mask.

Tips on creating a Custom Mask.

  • According to Swift Publisher, the ideal mask image size is 519 x 519.
  • You can create an Image Mask with any program.
  • The images can be JPG or PDF documents.
  • The areas of black are removed when a Mask is applied.
  • You can't add the custom mask to Swift Publisher. Save the file in a reference folder to be found later.
  • You can learn how to create a Mask using this YouTube Tutorial.
  • If you don't have any creativity time, you can always buy a mask collection on Creative Market.
