A Beginner’s Guide to Clipping Paths

Clipping paths are a technique used by designers and illustrators to cut out an object from its background. This is done using vector-based software.

A clipping path is a selection of pixels in an image that defines the area to be copied and pasted onto another image or layer.

The term “clipping path” is typically used in the context of graphics editing software, but it can also refer to the physical masking tape or paper used as a stencil on a photo shoot to restrict where light reaches the film.

A clipping path can be created by drawing a freehand selection around an object, tracing a selection around an object with the pen tool, or by using one of many Photoshop-compatible plug-ins.

The most common use for clipping paths is to cut out objects from their backgrounds so that they can be used independently from the original background.
