PHOTOSHOP CLIPPING PATHS Digital photo cut-out

The best way to explain the clipping path process is to compare it to a traditional cutout. It’s like when you cut an image with scissors from a magazine. Once you got it out of its original background, you can put the image on a different one. The idea of clipping path is similar to this process.

You might hear of “closed vector path”, the Photoshop clipping path technique which takes a “deep etch” of the image and allows you to completely remove the subject. By using Photoshop program, we can apply lines to the subject image so that everything within the boundaries is removed from the overall image. You might wonder why this has been done to your images… Well, from time to time, a background can make an image too busy, and when this happens, it detracts and takes the focus away from the main subject of the image. Let’s see what Photoshop clipping path tool does to your product image.

Are clipping path techniques always advisable?

Clipping patch technology through Photoshop isn’t always the best course of action. Some exceptions can occur when there are hard-to-define edges on an image. How do we solve the problem? We simply use another technique. Frequent situations are when the edges of an image are fuzzy, when there’s hair involved, or when there’s transparency around the edge of the image.
