Clipping Path Service

When it comes to eCommerce, creating a precise selection around the product becomes crucial. For that, we need services like clipping path and layer masking to highlight the product's details and enhance its appeal to customers.

A clipping path is a line drawn around an object in an image to isolate it from the background or other objects using software like Adobe Photoshop. The main advantage of using a clipping path is that it provides a sharp and clear edge, making the image look more professional and appealing.

On the other hand, layer masking is a non-destructive technique that hides or reveals parts of an image without permanently deleting any part. Unlike a clipping path, which is absolute, layer masking can make adjustments at any time and is ideal for handling soft edges or fine details like hair, fur or thread where a clipping path might be too harsh.

This can be used together to achieve high-quality results for complex images for fashion studios, marketing or e-commerce platforms.

Clipping Path Services We Offer

Basic Clipping Path

Price: Starting from $0.60

This is ideal for straight, rectangular, square, round, and oval objects i.e objects with well-defined edges and minimal curves. The path creation involves tracing a selected part around the object and cutting it out from the background without affecting the rest of the image.

Multiple Clipping Path

Price: Starting from $0.60

This technique creates multiple paths within a single image to separate them individually. It's like creating several basic clipping paths, one for each object. For instance, if there's a photo of a model wearing a shirt, pants, a cap, and shoes, we will draw a separate clipping path around the shirt, another around the pants, and the same with other items. This way, each item can be individually selected and edited without affecting the others.

Single Layer Masking

Price: Starting from $0.60

Single-layer masking hides or reveals parts of an image or single layer without erasing it. It allows you to create an edit that affects just an area of the image rather than the entire layer on which the image is placed.

Multi Layer Masking

Price: Starting from $0.60

In multi-layer masking, you create masks on multiple layers which allows you to hide or reveal content on each layer selectively. For instance, you could have separate layers for the bird, the branch, and the new background. By combining the visibility of these masked layers, you can create a layered final image.

channel masking

Channel Masking

Price: Starting from $0.60

Channel Masking stores the details of an image file, such as color information and alpha channels for transparent data. While you can't use channel masks to directly hide parts of a layer, you can make detailed selections which can then be used in a layer mask. So, while channels provide the source information, layer masks hide and reveal within the image layers.
