Graphic Magix are the foremost offshore graphic studio, highly skilled in image manipulation and editing. Our clipping path service is one of the most popular that we offer, but what exactly does it entail?
Simply put, a clipping path is an outline created around an image which allows you to remove a picture from its background - much like cutting an image out of a magazine with scissors.
You may also hear a clipping path referred to as a ‘closed vector path’ or ‘shape’. Once the clipping path is applied, everything on the inside of the line, or ‘path’, is included in the final cut and everything outside is left behind. Anything you don’t want to appear in the finished image - whether it’s a background or some other unwanted element like a shadow or display stand - can be removed.
Using image editing software such as the industry standard Adobe Photoshop, our skilled operatives utilise the highly precise pen tool to define areas of an image for manipulation. At a basic level, this might be tracing the outline of a picture so that it can be used in a layout programme such as Quark Express or In Design. However, we can also use the clipping path to change the shape of an image, edit a specific region, or create a collage of several images for a layout design.
Although there are other methods for removing unwanted elements from an image, there are no techniques that can rival the quality achieved by image processing services using a clipping path selected manually by a skilled operative.
