Property Paths

Object Type Path to CustomMask
.OptionsMask .CustomMask


A mask applied to an image specifies what regions of the image are visible to and hidden from end-users. To make a certain part of the target image visible to end-users, add transparent or semi-transparent regions to the mask.

The figure below shows an original image, a custom mask and the result of combining the image and the mask.


By default, the mask is proportionally stretched to fit the image’s bounds. You can change the mask layout behavior and mask size with the PictureEditOptionsMask.MaskLayoutMode and PictureEditOptionsMask.Size settings. The PictureEditOptionsMask.Offset and PictureEditOptionsMask.Margin properties allow you to shift the mask relative to the image.
