That's a mask on a layer. and while it can be the end result of a clipping path, it's not the same.

Some advice, get ride of the red outline representing the clipping path and show it on a different color background so it can be evaluated for quality. From what I see in your samples I would not pay for the service, but this could be due to image size and quality of the "outline" and not representative of the actual quality of the work.

I would also have larger images for review and/or magnified regions to show the quality, possibly even going as far as having downloadable sample psd files for potential customers to review.

Re: Creating Image Clipping Path Services

Quantum3: A bunch of people are wrong.

A mask is an alpha channel applied to a layer or layer set that defines transparency. If the file is saved in a format that supports transparency and you import the image into it then you will see that transparency. The mask is a 16 bit grey scale raster image, which allows for a "soft" edge. The mask is limited to the resolution of the image.

A clipping path is a vector shape, and needs to be specifically declared to set it apart from any other vector "path" that may be in the file. It is a hard edge shape which can be used by a page layout program to define a border of the image that is different than the physical border. It effectively masks out the shape, but it does so with a post script "Mask" instead of using the transparency defined in an alpha channel. The path is resolution independent and will match the resolution of the output device when printed.

Historically you would need to save a file with a clipping path as an EPS, but this format does not support transparency. TIFF files added support for transparency around 2000 if I remember correctly, but did not support clipping paths (though the paths were saved in the file). If you are using InDesign there is no need to be as fussy with file formats today since both of these are supported in .PSD files and ID can read the paths and channels saved in a TIFF or PSD file to apply a mask.

Masks are not 16 bit unless the entery file is 16 bits. The soft edges are becuase the antialiazing. As far as the definition of clipping path says, they just want that, the clipping path.

Re: Creating Image Clipping Path Services

Clipping Path is nothing but a process of removing background from any image. And doing a perfect clipping path first a perfect path selection is needed, in photoshop pen tool is used for perfect path selection. After that just clipping path is applied to selected path for knock out background.
