Grafix Production has a new image processing service. If you have existing photography which needs to be cut out, maybe placed on a white or transparent background, we can help.
This sort of work generally falls into 2 categories:
This is the technique used to isolate an image from the background, whereby a path is physically (and manually) drawn around the object. It is used for cutting out images of products for compositing into different backgrounds, including plain white backgrounds. The path produces a crisp, hard edge, so it’s suitable for products with hard edges.
Products with less defined edges (such as furry items), animals, people etc., cannot be isolated from their background using a clipping path. Normally, these kinds of item have a selection mask, allowing them to have new backgrounds applied. The difference is due to these kinds of objects having semi-transparent edges – areas of hair for example, allow some of the background to show through.
We would generally supply this sort of image with a transparent background, as either a 24-bit PNG file, or as a Photoshop document. This would give the most flexibility with the image.
We can optionally add a new, artificial background, which can include shadows and/or reflections. This can sometimes help to “ground” the item, preventing it from looking as if it is floating in mid air.
