  • Wallace Jackson


Now that we have covered the Special Effect and Imaging Effect algorithms in Inkscape and Painter, let’s get into some of the more technical aspects of layer-based digital compositing. Your selections, often called "selection sets" in the digital image, digital illustration, and digital painting industries are used to show the software where you want to apply pixel processing, and can be saved as "alpha channels" and used later on during the digital imaging, illustration, and painting production work process (workflow) as needed.
