To clip any image many methods can be adopted. Many tools and techniques can be combined. But which prove to be the fastest when there are more images to be clipped waiting in line.
Whenever clipping path is used, its primary function is to cut the object and isolate it. The most common way is to remove the background and replace it with some other. But often, the change does not really enhance the beauty of the picture. Hence alternates are used or simply the technique is changed. It can be really time consuming. When clients need urgent work and pile the editor with many clipping image jobs, it is understandable that he will chose the fastest way to finish the job and satisfy the client. A better background may be not conceived as the best solution. Hence the image needs rebuilding.
Once the editor determines the clipping path then he has applied it to all the other pictures provided they all are in the same subject category. Some of the items it is used for include apparels, footwear, pharmacy products or handbags. With the same model it is applied on other products. Once the clipping path is done either by way of cut out or extracting the main object (product, item, bottle etc) then it is time to build the image. A simple airbrush removes the jagged tones preparing a smooth texture. After the product image is clipped it is then embellished with text, other graphic art to make it more attractive. These reworked power images are used for advertising in the print and web media.
The tool that works the fastest is the pen tool in Photoshop. It has an ability to take on the work swiftly. An experienced editor uses it, as there are less chances of error even when he is in a hurry to use it for bulk images. If the image is in bitmap format, the clipping path applied produces a vector object and both are blended. The fastest way again would be to use the EPS file system. It is uniform and is open ended for further correction. The editor can continuously do the clipping image, format it and convert in eps or pdf and send it to the client. If it is an architectural sketch then it can easily be embedded on a drawing vector file.
Clipping an image is considered the best way to enhance the beauty of the product that is being displayed for the consumers. The technique may be clinical but it is the creativity of the designer or the editor that works like magic. When there is an acute need to promote business or services or any items, displaying them with pictures attract the consumers. Hence clipping path has vast possibilities to keep consumers returning for more.
