How to go about on Clipping Path

Step 1

Open the image in Photoshop directly rather than opening the image from the menu. Now, open the ‘Pen Tool’ option from the menu and use the same to create a path around the image area which can become the silhouette of the image that you have opened.


If you are unable to see the Save Path, then the path has already been saved. You can skip to the next step.


Step 2

You are now required to open the Panel Menu in the Paths Panel and click on Save Path. Importantly, make sure that you name references.


Step 3

Select the Clipping Path from the same Panel Menu. Select the path that you have saved from the dialog box of Clipping Paths and click OK.


Unless you want to change the value of the Flatness Device Pixels, you can leave the text field blank. As you would know, the flatness values can determine the number of device pixels that have been used to create the silhouette. If the values are higher, the number of points created will be fewer increasing the swiftness of processing. However, speed can affect appeal of the image; higher flatness value results in straight edges instead of the more desirable curved edges.


Step 4

Choose the Save As option in the file and select the Photoshop EPS in the format dropdown. Another dialog box would open in the EPS Options dialog box. Give OK to the defaults.


Clipping Path is undoubtedly a crucial element in deciding the overall quality of the image that undergoes the enhancement procedure. As a photo editing company that wants to withstand the competition and provide extensively incredible services to the clients, aspects such as these must not be overlooked.
