    cutting out a shape with compound Path ?

    Netcommercial Community Member

      Hello Cs6 here.... I am trying to cut out a simple shape to allow the area under the shape to be  trasnparent or Alpha. Like a Mask. Except when I use the Mask it does at it should do and mask the area where the shape is and MASKING or removing the areas not under the mask. I tried Compound path but I am not getting any result from it. My shape stays right on top of my work and does not "cut it out" to allow the Background to shine through as an alpha channel. See pics for clarity please. Any specific path or steps would be appreciated.

      Thanks in advance.
