The reasons to use a clipping path to remove the background from an image varies with the project but generally involve:

  • Flexibility. Many file types can be edited with a clipping path, including JPG, PNG, GIF, TIF.
  • Professionalism. A clipped image will look better than “painting out” the background. A clipped image simply looks more professional.
  • Edge Treatment. A clipped image can be created with either a sharp edge or a soft edge.
  • Edibility. A clipped image can be edited at any time.
  • Convenience. A clipping path service is easy and fast.
  • File Size. A clipped image can produce a smaller file size.
