Photoshop clipping path is one of the mostly used image editing technique. It’s a sort of vector line that is drawn with the help of Photoshop pen tool. The main goal of clipping path is to cut out an image from the background. Normally, we apply different methods for image extraction like Photoshop masking, image clipping, quick selection or magic wand etc. With comparison to other image extraction methods clipping path is the best.
Deep etching is another term stands for image clipping. In order to understand the importance of deep etching, we have to compare it with other background removal techniques. Image masking is another popular background removal technique but it’s suitable for all kind of images. If deep etching can’t remove the background you may try with Photoshop masking. So clipping path is the first priority over image masking.
There are different shortcut background removal techniques like quick selection, magic wand, lasso tool etc. You can easily remove image background with the help of these tools. It will take several times less time than deep etching but we still prefer image clipping. You may ask why I should choose it instead of other quick and easy process. The answer is very simple. Quality is the main issue in this case. If you remove background with shortcut technique like magic wand the quality won’t be good enough for professional use. It will bleed the background color or some part of the main object will cut off. Image clipping is the best solution in this case. It will remove the background by protecting the object of the image by ensuring the best possible quality.
