Opacity Mask Basics: Illustrator
by Jay Hilgert
on March 27, 2007
Hi all, I just got back from 4 days away from home, so here is something to chew on while I get back into the swing of things. If you have ever downloaded (or not) one of my free sets of buttons or webpage elements, you might notice that I use a lot of opacity masks in my Illustrator files. I do this for a number of reasons, some of which may be obvious, but I would like to clarify a little better on how to use these (opacity masks), and why.
