    Mask on photograph taints synthetic background - help please?

    hellopossum

      I am trying to use a combination of photographs dissolving out of an applied synthetic background to form a dynamic collage of images moving in and out of picture.  However in masking the photos with an eliptic mask I find that a faint image of the original rectangular shape of the photo can still be seen in the applied synthetic background, tainting its colour eg if it is white it is a light gray, if it is black it is a faint white.  There is no apparent way increasing the opacity of the blocking region of the mask to prevent this.  How do you deal with this issue?
