Cutting out a photo or an element from a photo

Photo cut out is a process of cutting an element from a photo and isolate that by creating a new file for that specific element. There is another name for it which is Photoshop clipping path. While both are pretty much same, some people prefer to call it photo cut out where others call it clipping path.

Clipping path is a more technical term in Photoshop. Technically savvy people who are proficient in Photoshop use the term clipping path. Where people who just know what need to be done, they use the term photo cut out.

There are online tools as well as desktop tools available for this type of photo cut out operations. However, if the image is noisy or blurry, or there are not so even background on the photo, using the tools or online applications will not cut out or remove the background of a photo properly.

If you are just an average home user needing to edit one or two images hare and there, the you can use the photo cut out applications or tools to get the job done. However, if  you are a business owner needing to remove the background form your product photo, you need to avail the services of a professional photo cut out service provider or a clipping path service provider.

Also, business owners who need hundreds of photos or in some cases thousands of photos to be cut out, they don’t have time fooling around with free photo cut out tools and trying to see if they can get away with it. They neither have the time or can justify doing so. Since these images need to be professionally edited and must look ecommerce site friendly, they require personal touch. Without high quality editing, prospective buyers will not have confidence in the company product as those photos will not look attractive with proper finishing. This is where corporate clipping path or photo cut outservices come in handy.

Ghost Mannequin Effect

Photoshop is a photo editing and retouching software that is known to do wonders. With a little creativity, there is no limit to what you can do with it. Let your imagination run wild and will find that only the sky is the limit with photoshop.

While there are some with vivid imagination and they do create innovative arts using photoshop, others just learn the trick of the trade and use photoshop to perform their day to day activities. There are lot of photo editing and retouching professionals who are making a full time living using adobe photoshop. Some of the common areas of work using photoshop are clipping path, photo editing, photo retouching, background removal, ghost mannequin effects or ghost mannequin photo editing, hair masking, drop shadow creation, etc.

Ghost Mannequin
List can go on and on as there are so many duties one can perform using photoshop. Some of the tasks require very minimal skills and training while others require graphic school diploma and long career training and hands on work experience. With some work like photo retouching and creating ghost mannequin effects, they require some level of creativity so just work experience doesn’t cut it in these areas.

A photoshop professional may have the needed skill or may understand the concept, but the finished output will not be high quality if enough time and attention is not invested. Ghost mannequin effect creation in photoshop for example, it is easy to clip the dress from the mannequin and join pieces together, but if the details are not paid attention to, the finished edit will not look professional.

Different people charge differently for photo editing services. It is always wise to know for the client as to how much time a specific job will require and whether the service provider is quoting accordingly. If some job takes half an hour for example and the service provider quotes $0.49 for that job for example, then the person is working for less than a dollar per hour.

How to photograph jewelry items properly

Contact for high end jewelry photo editing services.

Jewelry is an extremely delicate piece of item to photograph. A photographer needs to have deep knowledge in this area in order to be a good jewelry photographer. You might have the latest top of the line professional SLR or digital SLR camera, you may have proven track record in wedding photography or other portrait or landscape photography. Still you might suck at a jewelry photographer.

Shocked? Well, you need not be. Once I explain how it is to be a good jewelry photographer, you will easily understand what I mean and how true it is.

I started by saying jewelry being the most delicate piece of item you can ever shoot. Reason it is delicate because there are so many different types of metal like white gold, yellow gold, silver, starling silver, brass, bronze and what not. At the same time there are so many different types of stones as well as every single stone has its own characteristics.

While some stones will require center focused lighting arrangement, other might need the lighting to be evenly distributed to catch the proper color and show the real clarity. Improper lighting will make the jewelry items look dull and not suitable for any web shop.

A good jewelry photographer will understand what type of stone will require what type of lighting. A good jewelry photo make the job lot easier for the jewelry photo editing person retouch the photo easily and quickly. This at the end end up saving cost. While a poorly taken jewelry photo will make the jewelry photo retoucher spend lot more time on retouching which will drive up the cost of jewelry photo editing. If you therefore need to hire jewelry photographers for your product photo, make sure they know what they are doing.

Even if you are a good jewelry photographer, you will find the need of having your jewelry photos edited so that they can be suitable for posting on the web shop or catalogs. Difference being, a good photo will work as a good base and will take less time in editing.

How to retouch a photo

Before we go over how to retouch a photo, its important to know what photo retouching is. While the term photo retouching is pretty self explanatory, it is always a good idea to start with some basics for those who are new to the concept.

Photo retouching is basically retouching a digital photo. In other words, it is retouching or editing a photo that is in a digital format. Like a photo in the computer or cell phone or on some memory card or other storage device.

If you have an old camera that is not digital or if you have a printed picture that you wish to edit or retouch, that is also possible. However, you first need to scan the photograph with an image scanner, transfer a digital copy to your computer, then edit or retouch that photo.

You need an image editing tool like adobe photoshop or something similar that allows you to edit a digital picture. Using various functions of adobe photoshop, you can retouch or edit the image to whatever you like.

Adobe photoshop is a professional photo editing or photo retouching software. It costs money to buy the licensing for this specific photo editing tool. However, there are some free graphic design software that you can use to edit pictures as well. Depending on what you are doing, or if you just use the tool on an occasional basis, you might be better off going with a free software.

On the other hand, if you need photo retouching services on a regular basis, you might find it time and costs efficient to outsource your job to some photo retouching services provider.
