A clipping path, or “deep etch,” is a closed vector path used to remove an image from its background. The path is drawn by hand and applied using photo editing software. Anything within the closed path is included in the final image, while anything outside is cut. The use of clipping paths has become the industry standard for removing backgrounds precisely and professionally, primarily because they can be applied to images with both hard and soft edges. Compound paths can even be used for complex images or for multiple colors within a single image.
Why do YOU need a clipping path service?
Many companies and individuals involved in photography, design, and advertising can benefit from a professional clipping path service. If you are designing a sales catalog, for example, it may be necessary to remove many dozens of images from their backgrounds—a painstaking process. If you are designing a professional webpage, it can be necessary for formatting purposes to remove images from their backgrounds, which can be complicated for non-experts. Further, if you are a professional or amateur photographer, the “perfect shot” is often actually a combination of shots. Processing you images in-house is time consuming and labor-intensive…and you have better things to do
Our professionals draw all clipping paths by hand, using Photoshop’s pen tool. We apply the path to your image and remove everything outside. You can then use whatever background you like. We’ll return the images to you PDS or TIFF format, with a separate transparent background if you require.
