Let’s first officially introduce ourselves, we are the Clipping Masking Photoshop company, an expert on clipping path services and another Photoshop-related editing. Herein, we will share some of our knowledge regarding the best clipping path services.
Let’s dig in, shall we?
What is Clipping Path?
Clipping Path is essentially a process of professionally extracting an object out of the digital photo. It is also known as a digital photo cut-out, image clipping, closed vector path or shape, deep etching, and various other names.
The ‘clipping’ part of the expression is very obvious since we are clipping out a part of a photo. The path part refers to the process of basically droving a vector path around the object or multiple objects that we want to select. This is essentially a vector line, which means it is not pixel-depended and thus offers the highest level of detailed clipping.
Once we have applied the clipping path, we use it to ether select everything on the inside or on the outside of that path and simple cut-out the selection or delete the selected parts.
The process allows us to cut-out the object or to remove the background, as such it is what basically all online stores use to present their products on white or any other types of background they please. Of course, there are various other industries aside from e-commerce that rely on clipping path services and here at the Clipping Masking Photoshop, we have clients from all sorts of industries.
Types of Clipping Path
There are various types of clipping path services. Moreover, there are also multiple ways in which we can divide the clipping path service. Herein, we will focus on types of clipping path services according to the complexity since this is the most common division, which also determines the price of a clipping path service.
Basic Clipping Paths
The basic clipping path represents the entry-level of the clipping path service. It generally requires a single path with mostly straight curves, this means the object of interest is solid and of simple shape. A few good examples of basic clipping path services would include objects such as ball, plate, egg, mobile, book, computer mouse, spoon, etc.
The basic clipping path service also represents the lowest price level.
Simple Clipping Paths
A simple clipping path is applied to curved products/objects with a simple hole, such as T-shirts, shoes, rings, watches, earrings, chairs, cameras, etc. When referring to a simple clipping path, the number of curves and anchor points of the path is greater than the basic clipping path, yet still relatively simple to perform.
The simple clipping path service represents the second price level.
Compound Clipping Paths
Compound clipping paths represent or also known as medium-level clipping paths. It includes isolating objects with multiple holes and designs on images with multiple curves. The number of anchor points here is noticeably greater than with a simple clipping path.
Some good examples of compound/medium clipping paths: bracelets, group shoes, group watches, motor parts, group rings, double shoes, group foods, etc. Basically, any photo containing multiple simple objects would fall into a compound clipping path category.
As expected, the compound/medium type of clipping paths cost more than simple and basic clipping paths.
Complex Clipping Paths
Complex clipping path is applied to images or photos of compound (a great number of objects) and complex shapes, designs or group photos. The objects on these types of photos have many holes or many transparency levels and many closed paths.
Great examples of such objects are chains, a group of people, furniture, group bracelets, furry dolls, complex jewelry, nets, cycles, hair in the wind (models), etc.
As you can imagine, these types of clipping paths are very time-consuming, thus they cost more than the above clipping paths.
Multiple Clipping Paths
A multiple clipping path is a complex clipping path with additional paths carefully crafted within the product itself. Multiple clipping paths’ purpose is to save you the trouble of re-shooting since it enables you to change the color of your product or correct shadows in only a portion of the image.
With multiple clipping path services, the client can change individual components of an image in terms of enhancing or changing color level, multiple fillings, opacity, size, rotation, filters, effects, and more.
Of course, you should expect to pay extra for multiple clipping path services.
Super Complex Clipping Paths
Some objects are extremely complex and require Super Complex Clipping paths. This refers to a wide range of products containing multiple double holes, high complexity, gate-like shape, vertical and horizontal zigzag design and similar. All of these require a large number of paths and anchor points.
Some solid examples of super complex clipping path are fences, multiple dolls, group photos with flying hair, multiple interlaced decorative chains, group bracelets, furry dolls, gates of buildings, trees, etc.
Naturally, a super complex clipping path service is the most expensive.
NOTE: Complex Clipping Paths, Multiple Clipping Paths, and Super Complex Paths may also require the use of image masking services, layer masks, and alpha-channel masking to get the best possible results, which may also result in additional costs.
Benefits of Clipping Path Service
As mentioned above, clipping path services are used in a wide range of industries to make the most out of the existing photos or to create images that couldn’t be done even with the best camera crews and top studios.
Using high-quality clipping services essentially enables you, as a company or an individual to dispose of images of individual objects, products, models, animals, etc., and use them to create top-notch quality visual content.

If you are a Photoshop expert yourself and have to edit a great number of photos (including clipping path portion), it definitely makes sense to outsource that part. That way you will have this rather time-consuming part done and a lot more time to focus on detail retouching.
Moreover, Photoshop is Adobe’s piece of software and thus makes completely removes the compatibility issues when working with InDesign, Illustrator, Premiere Pro, After Effects, and other Adobe visual content creating programs.

InDesign is also Adobe’s piece of software that is used for catalogs, flyers, brochures, magazines, newspapers, posters, business cards, postcards, stickers, comics, and many other types of documents or visual communication materials.
InDesign professionals need a lot of objects cut-out of photos, thus they often outsource clipping path service to save a ton of time.

Whether you are working with vector files or not, having a set of prepared clipping path images will make your workflow in Illustrator a lot faster and smothers.

However, finding a reliable clipping path services in Asia from scratch can be extremely time consuming and you might spend weeks on correspondence before finding a perfect fit for your needs. Moreover, there are scammers online that you can easily encounter when initiating such deals.
Thus, it makes sense to connect with a company that is already specialized in outsourcing your clipping path requests to Asian ‘Photoshop-ers’. That way you will pay slightly more than connecting with Asian clipping path experts directly, yet still a lot less than outsourcing it with someone from your country.

Professional clipping path services get the best rendition of your image and can use ‘hard edger’ or ‘soft edges’ technique accordingly. Of course, the technique used depends on the type of work.
