Easy Steps To Create Clipping Paths

The steps I will mention work faultlessly for the objects or images that have distinct edges and can be sliced with ease. Translucent edges like hair or other materials don’t get that justification. Here are the exceptional and self-explanatory steps to create clipping paths:

1. Open the image which needs to be trimmed.

2. Pick the pen tool and create a path around your object. But to avoid the white nimbus in the finished picture, it’s better to draw the path on the inner edges. This way, you will have a perfect cutout that seems realistic and not engraved.

3. Now is the time to close the path when you are done withdrawing. Click on the start point to cease the pathway.

4. Go to “Paths Panel” and double-tap on the work path to hoard the path for future allusion. As per your choice, rename the path, and it will be entrenched inside your document, which will put it together for you in the final Jpeg.

5. It’s simple as anything, as you are now very close to your outcome. Once when you are done with step fourth, it’s time to click on the sub-menu under “Paths Panel” and create clipping path.

6. To snip off the object from the existing background, smack on “Clipping Path” from the dropdown menu and hit OK.

7. Here you go, save this clipped picture as JPEG by clicking on Save As under File Menu.
