The Millennial Way of Cutting Out Image
Clipping Path, also known as ”deep etch”, is a path drawn around the image which allows you extract the subject image from its background.
Derived from the word Clipping which means trimming out a piece, and path which means a line that separates the subject from the rest; the name itself explains the whole Clipping Path Process.
The closest analogy of Clipping Path in simpler term is cutting out a piece of an image from an old newspaper. To create a smooth and perfect cut, you need to create an outline that borders the background and the subject image. The same thing goes with Clipping Path, you draw a subtle line around the figure and removes it from the rest of the photo.
This process is highly applicable to images that you want to give emphasis. So instead of risking divided attention from the image and its background, you remove the distraction and enhances the quality of the subject of attention.
In digital editing, Clipping Path is available in Adobe Photoshop. You may activate this function and start creating an imaginary line around the image and remove it from its originating piece. This allows you to omit shadow, stands, and other photo killing flaws. Every single detail within the path is saved for further application and image manipulation. Whatever’s outside the line is left behind.
The whole process requires patience, subtlety, and professional knowledge and skills in digital image editing. Thus, it’s better to leave the editing job to professionals especially when your business’ future lies in image quality.
In Adobe Photoshop editing, the Pen tool is one of the most important functions in achieving an accurate and flawless output.
The Pen Tool
A Pen Tool is available in Adobe Photoshop which functions as a precise cutting tool in creating a clipping path.
A Pen Tool has a right and left arm which allows you to control the overall position and size of the line from the front and back.
It functions synonymously with Magic Wand but Pen Tool is way more accurate than the other because it allows you to point the exact line of your image without omitting any parts of the subject. It lets you include even the slightest detail of your subject image.
Clipping Path specialist only uses and relies on Pen Tool in preparing the image before extracting or replacing the background.
The Benefits of Clipping Path

• Hides photo-killing flaws without omitting its background
• To provide emphasis on the subject in a certain angle or region or change the shape or color of an image.

Clipping Path Service; The Way We Do It!
Our team of experienced graphic editors is knowledgeable and skilled in using different digital image editing software but we mainly opt to use Adobe Photoshop which is not only the industry’s standard image editing tool but the most precise, flexible, and undeniably the best among other software within the context.
Using Adobe Photoshop, we create a precise and smooth line around the edges of the image using a Pen Tool. This helps create a defined Clipping Path and enables us to remove the image easily without ruining the subject.
In creating a Clipping Path, we simply zoom the image by 200% or 300% depending on the image resolution and quality.
Zooming in the image helps our graphic designers create as many anchor points as they deem suitable.
Adobe Photoshop allows you to create an appropriate number of anchor points which makes the whole Clipping Path process easier. But without skills and enough knowledge in the craft, these anchor points may damage the subject image as well.
Creating the perfectly precise number of anchor points is crucial in retaining the subject’s correct shape.
Creating too many or too few anchor points will result in a warped out and lamely cut-out photo.
