Layer Masking: For editing a photo with Photoshop masking, layer masking comes first to the mind. A photo has some parts that need to be masked. An editor covers or reveals that area of that photo. It is controlled by two properties. One is white, and the other one is black in color. Black helps to invisible or transparent the photo. And white color reveals the picture. This is the easiest and quickest photo masking to remove the background from the picture. Later on, the picture can be added to different backgrounds. This tool plays a significant role to create a soft edges surface.

Clipping mask: A clipping mask is adding two layers where the bottom layer puts an effect on the top layer. Basically, one layer is used to bend the transparency of another layer. It is a lot different from the layer mask. The main image should be on the top layer while editing. Then a shape is chosen to edit that particular region. Though it takes time, it is easier than other masking techniques. You can apply different shapes, frames, and other effects to the picture.
