	# Image Masks

	# In the opaque imaging model, images mark all areas they occupy on the page as

	# or color, completely obscure any marks that may previously have existed in the 
	# same place on the page.
	# In the graphic arts industry and page layout applications, however, it is common 
	# to crop or 'mask out' the background of an image and then place the masked image 
	# on a different background, allowing the existing background to show through the 
	# masked areas. This sample illustrates how to use image masks.
