Clipping Path For Image Perfection

And if the photo background needs some change, the composition of the photograph can be put aside with the basic CP technique. A shape is defined before separating the main object. Then the unwanted portions are knocked out. Clipping path of this kind was referred to as ‘knock-out’ originally when Photoshop software was devised. Besides this, a tool called ‘work path’ is used to make CP more constructive before the final composition. Once the photo editing is done, it can be saved in EPS, DCS, or even PDF format. But, EPS format is the most accepted format, because it allows us to make further changes if needed.

Photoshop is the most popular software program for clipping paths. But there is also much other software like, In Design, Corel Draw, and Illustrator.
