When we talk about background removal services for images, the most widely asked question remains,” Why to employ photo editing services when photographers can edit the image themselves?”
Background removal can do wonders to transform an image and enhance its value. While basic editing for background removal could be done by photographers, complex background removal procedures need editing at the hands of experts. There is a stupendous amount of editing that needs expertise and finesse that can be tackled only by an experienced team of photo editors. There are different kinds of background removal services that can be employed depending on upon the photo editing requirements. Adobe Photoshop is the most widely used software for background removal techniques as it provides quality editing and superior results.
Types of background removal services
This photo editing service is very popular and involves separating the object from the background and then placing it against a more suitable one. Once the object is placed against a new background, thereafter retouching techniques and drop shadow can be applied to the image to enhance it further. Hence clipping path is the obvious choice for marketers who showcase their products on e-commerce platforms for marketing and sale. Clipping path is also used by photographers for setting making portfolios of objects, models etc.
The process of performing clipping path is simple yet requires a great deal of practice to get perfect results. First, a path is selected around an object which has to be detached from its background. This is the clipping path and is usually selected using the pen tool of the Adobe Photoshop software. The larger number of points that are selected, the user can more intricately define the outline of the selected object. The selected object is then cut along its clipping path. The object is then placed against a new background which is usually white (for e-commerce purposes). Further, photo effects like color changing, retouching, and drop shadow can be added to the image as per the requirements of the user. The motive of performing clipping path services is to improve the quality of the image.
Clipping path services are used for images where the outline is clear and the image has a defined shape. But what about images that have hairy and fuzzy edges and blurred outlines. Instead of detaching the image from its background, we can hide the undesired parts. This technique of masking the irrelevant portions of an image is called photo masking. The technique of photo-masking is performed that the image retains its original form and looks natural and real.
Advanced photo editing service providers often use different background removal services in a single image to bring out the best results. Some portions have to be masked while in some parts, clipping path services have to be applied. To give the final touches to an image, photo retouching services like color, texture, shadows also have to be worked upon. These services have to be performed by a qualified photo editing expert who is established in the digital photo editing fraternity.
