Tutorial: Model Image Masking



Alpha channel does the same thing as other masking techniques, 
             with the difference that here, an Alpha Channel is used to. 
             Alpha channels are used to hold complex masking features and data.
             Alpha channels allow you to access mask, but it is not really used in the image. 
             It is a not-so-common masking technique and therefore, 
             for the optimum results to be achieved there has to be
             a professional doing this job.
