Clipping Path

Before going into step by step detail, you must get familiar with terms like ‘pen tool’, ‘anchor points’, ‘handles’, ‘curves’, ‘cones’, ‘selection tool’ etc. The ‘pen tool’ is the key tool for applying the clipping path. Indeed, it requires expert hands to give you the best result. Photoshop experts are efficient in using the pen tool, especially when it comes to navigate the ‘handles’ to curve the ‘anchor points’. All the magic hides in the combination of ‘handle’ and ‘anchor points’ navigation. Let’s have a quick look at the process-

What our experts basically do is simply assess the image our client intends to extract. It needs professional eyes to count the number of curves needed for each image. An anchor point basically works as the starting point or one end of a line, and the second anchor point is placed in another suitable direction. The handle is used to navigate the anchor points to make the curves bigger, smaller, less or more curved. In this way, the desired image is extracted from original image and/or the background is removed as per client’s need. The extracted portion may be placed further against another background.

So far, it sounds simple and easy. Indeed it’s easy for proficient clipping path experts. However, not all the images are just cut and done. There are some images that need keen attention and enough time to be extracted. Based on difficulty level, there are six types of clipping path services applicable.

Ranging from Basic Service to Super Complex Service, clipping path complexity varies due to shape, hole, curve, corner, transparency, shadow etc. The more complex the picture is, the more time and labor it takes to get the job done.

Basic or Easy Clipping

It depends on the image and clients wish whether it requires a simple or more complex. Generally. If there is no whole and less curve required, then it is considered a basic one. Round, square, or any other basic shapes are easy to extract with less time and minimum effort. Therefore, within a short period of time, a large volume of work can be completed. Basic clipping path always costs minimum which any client can comfortably afford.

Simple service

Basic shapes with fewer holes are considered for simple. It’s just needs a bit more time and effort to extract the desired portion. It’s not too far from the basic one.

Medium Service

As we already have understood that gradual increase of corners and curves will rise up the clipping path difficulty level, naturally medium clipping path requires more number of corners and curves along with fewer holes (embedded transparency). For instance, if you need to extract an image of bracelet which contains few holes and curves, it comes under medium clipping path service.

Complex Service

Images which have complex designs including curves, holes, and closed paths etc. increase difficulty level as they require more time and effort. For example an image of a group of people or a player in front of a tennis court needs complex clipping path to extract or change the background.

Multiple Service

Images that need improvisation of color, size, shape, and rotation along with the shapes and curves come under multiple clipping path. This service is considered really difficult and should be given keen attention and enough time to get the appropriate result. Since the service is difficult, along with clipping path it also involves color correction masking.

Super Complex Service

Net, fence, gate, zigzag wire, multiple holes, flying transparent cloth or hair, printed cloth, array of cloths, or collection of jewellery need highly expert hands and professional eyes to get a perfect output. It is considered super complex because it exceeds all other clipping path service in terms of time and effort. It’s easy to guess that this complex work will cost more than other services. Still, clients don’t need to worry much as there are many affordable clipping path service providers who are ready to take it down at a quick pace with minimum price.

Who Needs Clipping Path Service?

The appeal homemade cakes have is definitely worth mentioning, but what about the local baker shop in your neighborhood? Ever wondered why does it even exist when anyone can bake their own dessert watching a YouTube tutorial or reading a cookbook? The answer is simple. Not everyone has the time or expertise to make the dessert taste or look professional. That’s where the need of a baker shop arise. Similarly, in terms of image manipulation, graphics companies are experts in handling your images to give it the best professional look possible.

In this era of marketing, anyone who runs a business will need photo editing service at some point of their life. This Photoshop technique has made the life of advertisers easier. Following are some general clipping path service clients who need the service 365 days in a year.

Magazines

Primarily fashion magazines, but any other magazines with lots of photos and graphics always need graphic design service for numerous purpose. Magazines often merge two or more photos together on their cover page, or inside the magazine which needs clipping path service to make it happen. Also, their logo and images often need to juxtapose together which is impossible without this technique. In one word, clipping path works as the ‘makeover specialist’ for magazines when it comes image manipulation.

Advertising Agencies

Without this service, advertising agencies can’t run their business for a single hour. Not bragging it, but clipping path service makes an advertising company complete.

Handmade Canvas Paintings

For most of us canvas paintings are expensive affairs. But, how would it be to have those affordable home made canvas paintings that you can buy online? Yes, it does make sense doesn’t it? Top quality modern art and abstract art forms on canvas at affordable prices may seem a little surreal. But indeed they are not! They come with an affordable price tag that might even surprise you pleasantly.

If you are an ardent lover of art and paintings and wish to have a couple of handmade canvas paintings for your drawing room then you should start looking for them on the web. Yes, you heard it right! You do not need to go to an art collector or an art gallery. Only a few clicks on your mouse will take you on a journey to the places where art meets technology and let you choose from an exciting and enchanting collection of modern day art forms.

Buying a canvas on the web is an easy and exciting prospect. You can view hundreds of handmade paintings on a single search. You get all kinds of information that you need to know about a particular painting. You can use the zoom in and zoom out to view the paintings up close and personal.

Graphic Art

Web pages and articles have about six seconds of viewing time to catch their audience before the page is clicked over. Unless there is a catchy title or a word that grabs their interest they are gone, and they rarely return.

While the viewing audience of this latest media format amounts to many millions or more there is no guarantee that a web page will be seen. Instead of word many will be drawn in by a great image. Over time a logo or comedy picture will instantly connect if they know that there is a benefit to be had by sticking around.

Logo’s are great draw cards and teaching people to respond to them is best done through the graphics rather than words. That is because many are not fast readers and some can barely read at all. But everyone responds to a picture.

If, on the other hand, one is appealing to a more intellectually aware audience it is the words rather than the image they respond to. It’s important to know, therefore, who your audience will be and how to best present your material so the balance is right. That is where graphic art, writing, and drawing skills all come into play.

Still Life Paintings

Still lifes have never required some larger symbolic meaning. The form is respected as a difficult endeavor taken on by contemporary still life artists. Creating beautiful composition out of a commonplace item takes high level of artistic passion and skill. The genre has evolved over time, but several parts of still life remain the same.

The biggest similarity from century to century — and the biggest difference — is subject. The subject is the life. Over the hundreds of years, flowers, fruits, architecture, and more common elements have appeared over and over. Times change and objects change, but stillness and beauty don’t.

Fruit and flowers are always a good place to start, and a good way to learn how to create or observe great still life. Something about the vivacity and freshness of fruit and flowers keeps bringing artists back.

As the subject is the most important part of a still life, picking the right subject for you is the best way to put the life into a still life. There’s no such thing as a boring subject — there are always a few ways to add some interest to the imagery.

As with any other painting, thematically beautiful colors, dramatic lighting, and an eye for composition will make any everyday object fascinating.
