What is a clipping path?
A clipping path is the digital equivalent of cutting out part of a photograph with a scissors, except it is done on a digital image by trained professional's employing sophisticated software tools. A clipping path cuts out an area of an image, removing it from the background. Everything inside the clipping path is kept while everything outside the path is deleted. It can also be used to edit a particular area of an image. Clipping paths can produce a sharp, defined edge or a soft edge instead of a jagged "stepping stair" edge.
