What is image clipping?
Image clipping is the photo editing technique focused on removing an object or person from its background. Many software provides image clipping services. The cutout products, persons, or objects can be later used for post-editing and processing services.
Is image masking and image clipping a different service? How to distinguish both?
Often people confuse the image clipping services with image masking. However, there are differences between the two. Before selecting any one of the services, you should be clear about what result you will be going to get.
Image clipping vs. image masking:
Image clipping is always done with the help of the pen tool., mostly, the image clipping is done manually to remove the background accurately. Moreover, clipping is often chosen in the case when the product has distinct boundaries. So if the object of interest has smooth and sharp edges, then clipping is a good option, as smooth edges make the clipping path straight and make the clipping smooth.
On the other hand, image masking doesn’t rely solely on the pen tool, and it can be done in a variety of ways. Many software like photoshop, background eraser tools provides the image masking option. Image masking services are available in the case when the object has fuzzy boundaries, hair texture, and there is no distinct boundary between the object and the background.
However, if you are up to editing a multifaceted object with different textured boundaries, then image masking and image clipping services can be used together to achieve better results. If there are multicolored backgrounds and shadows, then the merge of both techniques also provides a promising result.
