Photoshop :: Inverse Clipping Paths?

Jan 12, 2006

If I save a path as a clipping path and then import said path into Quark, I'm getting the background, not the selected cutout. Basically I'm getting the inverse of my path selection. I figure there must be a key command for this because it only started happening today.


Photoshop :: Paths And Selections Stuck On Inverse?

May 11, 2013

Every time I fill a closed path, it fills the inverse of the path instead. YES, "add to path area" is selected on the options toolbar rather than "subtract from path area". Also, I know I could just make a selection from the path, invert the selection, and then fill it. But that would be taking 3 steps to do something that should take one step, and it's slowing me down a lot.
Is there some default setting that I accidentally toggled or something?

Photoshop :: Clipping Paths

Aug 22, 2005

I am trying to create a logo that incorporates a circle and a picture of a dog.

Now I want to acheive a look where the dogs legs are hanging over one part of the circle but the circle is covering the rest of his body as though he had put his head througha hole in the wall.

I have been trying to acheive this with clipping paths but I can't see how to recreate the smooth lines of the original circle.

Photoshop :: Clipping Paths?

Jan 10, 2006

What does someone want when they say "send me some images at 300 DPI with clipping paths" ?

I get the resolution, I'll make them 300 PPI...but what is a clipping path? Does that just mean that they want them cropped? They have not specified a size or aspect ratio.

Photoshop :: Clipping Paths

Mar 25, 2003

I have a document in which I need to outline several objects seperately, when I do so and place the Photoshop file into Illustrator nothing shows up. It seems as though when I outline one item it will work but as soon as I outline multiple items (seperately) it will not work.

Photoshop :: Visibility Of Clipping Paths

Sep 22, 2013

Whilst CS 6 has some great improvements, I find running clipping paths in it very difficult. That is because in earlier versions of Photoshop, clipping paths showed up in the complementary color of the underlying color and were very visible. Now they are a darkish grey, which makes it often impossible to see them. You can go blind trying to see where you are clipping.

Photoshop :: Adding To Clipping Paths

Jun 16, 2004

But I have more than one inner path (20 in fact). I made a few, then stepped away, then made the rest. But when I select the clipping path and Make Selection, it only selects the outline and the first 3 inner paths that I made. How do I add the other 17 paths to the clipping path?

Photoshop :: Clipping Paths Not Working In CS4 On

May 22, 2009

I have an image of a dohnut on a plate. I want a clippint path around the dohnut and one in the dohnut hole. Using the option icons does not give me a result of just a dohnut for placement over a color or image background in an Indesign page. I've tried this on Mac and it works just fine. What's the problem with my Photoshop CS4 on Windows?

Photoshop :: Multiple Clipping Paths On Same Layer

Oct 4, 2011

It seems that it not able to make several paths on a single layer and then turn each path into it's own "clipping path " rather than just an outline path...Is this correct or am I doing something wrong ? I have 3 pieces of silverware on a background and want to outline each one separately then turn that path into a clipping path to move it to another file...I am able to make any one of them a clipping path , but not the others.

Photoshop :: Clipping Paths And Smart Object

Jun 24, 2013

When I place a Photoshop eps into a PSD file the image doesn't come over with a transparent background. I do have an active clipping path, it shows up transparent when placed in Illustrator and InDesign. Am I mistaking in thinking that the image would be clipped when placed?
I am using CC, but this problem has been in both CS6 and CS4.

Photoshop :: How To Smooth Edges Of Clipping Paths- Web Use

Oct 3, 2005

what can i do to the image so that when it rests agains the background (which in this case is a repeated gradient "sliver" in the CSS {background-image: ..}) it doesn't "look" like it's just stuck there.?

my technique thus far is to simply make the area transparent around my intended visible content, and save-for-web, then choose png (for colors, or gif if it's simple) and wa-lah, i have my transparent image w/ clipping paths. (forgive my mangled jargon). i have tried doing things such as using blending layer effects > inner-shadow, or bevel/ emboss... which sometimes seems to help the problem a bit, but i'm sure there is a better way.

Photoshop :: Applying Correct Clipping Paths

Jun 4, 2008

I use clipping paths on images to create contour cut items for various media. Think - turning a picture of a woman holding a product converted to a cardboard display of a same woman and product.

Been using some outsourced clipping path services and get a wide variety of formats returned to me (even from within the same companies who've done multiple jobs for me). I think what happens is the jobs get passed to whoever and they assume I use the pics for web applications.

Anyway, after jumping through a few different vendors trying to get some consistent deliverables, thought I might just see if someone can teach me to do it myself.

I'd be happy to forward an "original" and the delivered "version that works for me" and a sample of the "version that doesn't work for me." Need advice on steps to convert the "not working" file to "one that works." The main problem is that many timeswhile the clipping path is around the correct object, when I import into my software (FlexiSIGN) I then see the image on the white background (good) but when you click the image it is "framed" in the original square outline of the photograph (not so good). My machine wants to cut around the square outline not around the image.

CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X5 :: Using Clipping Paths From Stock Photos?

Nov 26, 2011

Is there any want to retain the clipping paths from certain stock photos (or any images which include paths) within either CorelDraw or Photo-Paint? Sure I can create my own or use the cutout tool, but sometimes it's nice to simply use what's already there.

Photoshop :: How To Invert (inverse) A Selection

Nov 17, 2013

How to invert (inverse) a selection. Here is what I did:

*Selection made via a channel
*With the selection still visible, I created a hue/saturation adjustment layer. This then only changed only the the image area that was selected, as was expected.
*I next chose the "inverse" command under "select"

I went back to the hue/saturation adjustment but the same part of the image as before was effected, same as prior to my "inverse" command. I DID observe that the selection had changed when I chose "inverse," but the adjustment did not effect the new "inverse" part of the image.

Photoshop :: Why Does Selection Within Image Detail Automatically Select Inverse

Aug 27, 2013

When I wish to select a detail within an image and right click to make the selection Photoshop CC automatically selects the inverse of the image, including the entire canvas. The edges of the canvas are not always visible when working in close-up. This has resulted in some close calls when appling color or airbrushing.

Photoshop :: Layers Look Fine But Printer Prints Color Inverse?

Sep 17, 2012

Throughout a project using Photoshop CS4, I print out the pages to make a dummy booklet. Once, upon opening the file and wanting to print, the preview window for Epson Stylus Photo R2400 printer showed a color inverse for the entire file. Viewing the images is normal in all ways. I had been making routine nudging, text editing, etc., on various layers and everything looked and behaved fine. It's only in the printing. I looked to see where a correction could be made, but I can't see anything. I tried to have the printer make color adjustments and have Photoshop make them.
