How to Create An Image Mask in Divi

by Mar 7, 2021Tutorials

Images are a very important element of any website. One picture says a thousand words and gives the page a fresher and lighter look.

It doesn’t matter if you are showing yourself/your products in the picture or using stock pictures, one thing is for sure, a picture with sharp edges can sometimes look quite boring.

If you observe the work of designers while looking for ideas to design your website, you have probably come across very interesting image layouts surrounded by colors and shapes many times.

This design is also called an image mask. And in Divi, this is very easy to achieve with a couple of modules. Follow this tutorial to find out how, or download three ready-made sections and edit them to your liking.

1

Add a new Section

Go to the page you want to add an image to or create a new one. Add a new Section with two rows and add a Divider module in the row of your choice.

2

Edit Divider module

  1. Show divider → No
  2. Background → Add your Image as a background (this gives you more control on how your image is positioned inside a mask).
  3. Apply Admin Label: Main image in the Content tab → Admin Label.
  4. Go to the Design tab and set height to 500px for Desktop, 500px for Tablet and 300px for Mobile view in the Sizing tab.
  5. In the Advanced tab go to Position and set position to relative, vertical offset to 10px and z-index to 2.

Now let’s add our mask.

We will be using SVG shape for this with base64 encoding.

In the Advanced tab of our Divider module go to Custom CSS tab and paste the code below in the Main CSS field.

Take a look at how your image looks inside the mask.

If you don’t like how it’s positioned you can go back to the background settings in the Content tab and choose a different background position. For my image I chose the bottom right position.

Add the background shape

  1. Add a new code module.
  2. Apply background color to it. I chose pink and added a bit of transparency.
  3. Apply Admin Label: Background Shape in the Content tab → Admin Label.
  4. Go to the Design tab → Sizing and set width to 70% and height to 100%.
  5. In the Transform tab choose Rotate and set 35deg to the first field.
  6. Go to the Advanced tab → Position. Set position to absolute, Horizontal Offset to 20px and z-index to 1.
  7. Now apply the mask to the background shape. Go to the Advanced tabCustom CSS and paste the code below in the Main element field.
