Create a mask with a shape


Relating to a previous thread created by @Colin Hewitthttps://community.miro.com/got-a-question-ask-the-community-45/create-a-mask-with-a-shape-516?postid=2512#post2512

 

The ability to create a mask of an image (for example a square profile photo) into a circle

Thanks George - This came from simply wanting to make profile images as circles rather than rectangles. But there are tons of other applications

@Colin Hewitt I was looking for exactly the same feature for similar use cases - agreed it could be a great feature to have


Following! Would love this feature.


Until they add this feature to create a circular crop/mask, I found one workaround where I upload a circular mask PNG that is the color of my background (in my case, I use a white rectangle in all of my frames), and I group it with my square image. Great for profile pictures, etc. Pasting it below.

Thanks for this @Todd Swanson!!! Out of the box thinking, I did not think to do something like this in the interim :grinning:

Things like this is the exact reason why I love Miro and the Miro Community! :bulb:  


I got here by wanting to fill a shape with an image.

Ha. Bump. 

Something next to the + icon here would be great...

 

 


Totally support this wish. For me it would truly help to be able to create a user defined mask crop on the image, so not just the circle but also being able to cut out some parts to be able to make a rough quick photo montage.


Yes please! +1


This is coming to Miro!! 🤩 From the Miro Next event:

 


How exciting!  

 


I’ve been using this all day and it works amazingly! All my imported images today were masked to circles! Thanks @Miro!!!

Can you share how you did this? I’ve been trying to figure it out and am stuck.


@supernic28 Did you sign up for beta access?

Ah, that explains it. My company has blocked beta access for us. Will have to be patient, I guess. :(


@supernic28 Whaaat, why? 🤯


@Henrik Ståhl 🤷🏻‍♀️


@supernic28 Sorry to hear that. Hopefully it won't be in beta for long though, it's a very neat feature!

A small new feature with big impact. Thank you 👏👏👏


Amazing! Thank you - I just tried it out today and it worked great!


Just echoing all the previous comments of adulation, this is an awesome feature. The inclusion of aspect ratios is also clutch - great when combined with web page capture for 16:9 snapshots of live sites. Thanks a gazillion Miro team!
