Photoshop Clipping Path

Photoshop Editing Professionally with Clipping Path

Clipping Path is a very popular service of Adobe Photoshop. And pen tool is the main tool which is used at clipping path.

Normally there is a way of working with vector eventually Photoshop works with raster (Bitmap) images. The main difference between Raster and vector images are the tiny little pixels. When the raster images are zoomed the pixel gets larger and bigger and thus the quality of the image falls down. Whereas the vector images are made with such a formula that no matter whatever size of the image is need to zoom the quality remains fine.  Generally bitmap image are for Photoshop and vector image are for illustrator. Thus Photoshop is used as the hybrid for vector and bitmap.

Creating Path By Using The Pen Tool


Create one new document. Select the pen tool. By clicking on the document create an anchor point. Create another anchor point at a different place. The point is connected by a straight line. Create another point at another place and drag it. Instead of the straight line you will find curve line.

You will find two handlers on two sides which you can use and control the curve. You can take control the curve by using the handler by increasing it to bigger or smaller. If you bring the mouse point on the anchor point a circle will appear. If you click on that you will find a close shape. There are 2 types of anchor point. One is straight which goes back towards the point and the other goes curve and opposite direction.
