Quick Tip:
Clipping Paths the Easy, No-Stress Way

I recently had a project that required me to remove the backgrounds from several images. This can be done in Photoshop using a technique called “extraction.”

It is a tedious and time-consuming technique. So, in an effort to save time (and, subsequently, money), I researched and found a gem of a company online that will extract and create a clipping path on any image you provide.

The turnaround time was 1-2 days, and the price … well, you aren’t going to believe this. How about $0.55 to $4.00 per image! (The price depends on the complexity of the background to be removed.) It cost me just $8.31 to have them remove 9 backgrounds – and the quality of the clipped images was excellent.

At that price – no matter how fast you are – who can afford to spend the time?
