What is clipping path?
Clipping Path is a closed vector path, or shape, usually drawn with Photoshop pen tool to cut out an image from it’s background. When clipping path is applied to an image, anything inside the path is included and everything outside the path is omitted. Use of clipping paths in the photo industry has increased dramatically in the past few years. Because the result of cutting out an image from background using photoshop clipping path is the ever best method in terms of quality. There may have some other option in photoshop to drop out background but they are not used while considering quality output. A clipping path not only can be applied to the kind of images that have sharp edge, it can also be applied to the soft edges.
Compound clipping path
In the photo industry, a compound path results from the combination of multiple paths for different product, or different color within a single image. It is usually used for color correction and background drop out purposes.
