How to do Clipping Path with Photoshop?

Clipping Path is a technique by which you can select a particular area of an image. The selecting area can be operated according to the designers wish. The most popular use of clipping path is to remove the background or portions of background of an image. The publisher might want to change the background of any image before publishing them, while keeping the object intact. Hence clipping path is the most appropriate answers. There are some other techniques and software which will also do the background removal. But the accuracy and the performance of manual clipping path is unbeatable. Here are some easy steps to do a clipping path with Photoshop. Hope it helps. I have use Adobe Photoshop CS6 for this.

Launch the Photoshop program and open the desired file on it.

Press (F) key. It will create full screen of the window.

Surround the document window with natural gray.

Now press (Z) in your keyboard for zooms and makes it 200% for a better appearance.

Open ‘Paths’ from the window menu. From the top right corner of the ‘Paths Panel’, select ‘New Path.

Select the Pen tool option from the available tools at the left portion. Or simply click (P) on your keyboard to select the pen tool.

Start drawing clipping paths around the edge of the product.

You must draw the path several pixels inside of the edge to make sure that all the backgrounds are fully eliminated.

To draw a straight line, click once and draw.

To draw a curved line, click and drag the cursor point along with the curve.

Keep drawing around the object of the photo until the starting point is reached.

When the starting point is reached, close the Path by clicking on the first anchor point.

Now press (A) on your keyboard to select the Direct Selection tool. Check the paths. With the help of direct selection tool, any mistakes or spots in the paths can be fixed.

After getting done with the check, select Clipping Path and choose a name for the path.

Finally save the image in TIFF or PSD format.
These steps are for the beginners. Actual professional clipping path services demands a lot of skill and experience from a designer. This is rather a time consuming job. Most of the clipping path customers will need them in bulks. If it is your case then I would suggest to outsource your images to any reliable outsourcing firm. That will save both time and money.
