A clipping path refers to a closed vector shape or path. This is usually drawn using a pen tool (in Photoshop) in cutting out the image from its background. The clipping path is applicable to different kinds of images with hard and soft edges. When doing a clipping path, everything that is inside the path will be included and everything that is outside such a path will be omitted. The use of clipping paths is immense and highly utilized at least in the global photo industry.
Such utilization had also increased dramatically throughout the years due to the high quality of clipped images. In fact, the clipping path is considered the best method not just in the photo industry, but in all image utilization-rich industries. This is more so because the clipping path service has the capability of dropping out the background without sacrificing image quality.
