Selection of Clipping path service provider

Clipping path, the initial stage to any animation, photo editing, art work or manipulation, is of-course a tedious task. I prefer adobe's photoshop for clipping path tracing of images. It can be often done using a losso tool, but you will not get the output you need. It may appear that you have torn an image out of its background. I often use a pen tool to get the edges of the image sharp and easy to use. I am then able to drag it to any canvas where I can apply my creative skills.

If you are a creative editor or engaged in some animation or ad design, you will notice that it is too tedious to get images clipped. I personally feel it too boring to get image clipping for all the images I work on. I often work on animations. I have enough shots taken with variations in camera angle. I have to then cut the edges of all these images which are almost unique except for the motions that they depict which are also too slow. Cutting edges and clipping path for same sort of images makes me feel irritated and also tiresome, as it consumes my major portion of work.

I was too desperate at this, and thought to get it done from some person who can only get me the clipping path services, then it would be almost easy for me to just work on my designs and use my time creatively. But to be frank it is hard enough to find a image clipping services. You may notice that there are a lot of service providers who offer clipping path services and selection is quiet hard approach.

I would like to discuss some points that may help you to select them if such a need arises in future.

1. Before you select a clipping path services, test the volume it can handle and the actual turn around time it can get them back to you.

2. How fast will be the data at your end.

3. The quality of clipping path provided by them.

4. Experience in clipping path or photo editing.

5. Cost of service.

I would suggest to get at least a few shortlisted who have the same expertise, though hard to find. Then you can negotiate the price. Go for a reasonable price that will bring both the supplier and provider for image clipping service on mutual benefits. This is necessary as you need to ensure the quality persist for years. Try these step and you will find my selection steps for a clipping path services are specific and will provide you best results.

Further I would like to say that, it is better to know the work.. any work before you provide it to anyone so that you do not have to wait for useless excuses. Choose a top-quality service that meets your needs.

Movie poster ‘floating heads’ designing through photoshop image editing

The magic behind the most widely used trend in movie posters is the ‘floating head’. It is the play of aesthetics than a science.

The world of movies is glitzy and the harbingers of movies are the flamboyant movie posters – now with the trend of making floating heads!

The active tendency in modern film posters recently is to create a black background with the faces of the lead actors/actresses above the name of the movie.

It requires generous amounts of creativity, imagination, dedication and patience to come out with a enchanting movie poster with floating heads, of course with complementing help of photoshop image editing and graphics services.

Though it sounds like child’s play, it is not a cake walk at all. It really needs all the converging attention and aesthetic faculty of a graphic designer or a photo editor from the selection of the faces to be added, the proportions to be given to each face, the colour combinations to choosing a appropriate backdrop.

I have noticed one of the posters of the movie, “Space Cowboys”. I could see faces of four actors in a stark black background – the expression in each of the face conveying their character in the movie with a play of light and shade giving its pecific effect.

Similarly, a movie poster of “Godsend” portrays three faces in a triangle form highlighting an unappealing expression on one of the faces and giving a fiery effect in the middle of the poster with a shadow cast in it. On the parallel track, one of the “Rules of Engagement” posters displays two of its lead actors’ faces showing a flaming inferno under their faces with an armed man’s silhouette in it. Almost convey what the movies are about, isn’t it!

Some prefers the much highlighted face of the hero alone in the poster expressing their ideas through bold strokes of assorted colours to it or some choose a mix and match of half the face of the lead actor in one corner and that of the actress in the opposite corner of the poster to get the desired effect (Malice). The antihero’s face is given particular highlights by some while that of the hero being chased will be given miniature form.

Photoshop image editing or graphics can do a lot of magic in the movie posters with floating heads. A very creative photo editor or graphics designer can express the whole movie’s theme through a single poster by the correct number and proportions of the faces selected, the background colours and the special graphic effects which would enhance the feel and appeal of the whole poster.
In a very interesting movie poster of “Crash”, we can see 17 faces tightly packed up to form a very effective poster. This shows that there are no written rules for creating the floating faces in movie posters. If you are into photo editing with a strong grip in graphics, you can be a successful movie poster maker with floating heads, just let your imagination run wild to discover new trends in this area.

No other recreation has taken us head over heels as the glossy and mesmerizing film industry has done. As a mass entertainer and a mob-mover, the films sometimes take the role of people integrators, moral makers and or to make things worse, iconoclasts. But how far do we know the film industry in detail? How many of us know the hassles and hurdles involved? From the germination of a thought to the final output as spotless movie, a film’s course is not a bed of roses.

Advertisements and media campaigns act as the harbingers of films waiting to be released which make the first impression about a movie. Ads, banners, flex, media trailers etc form the main pillars to the launch of a movie as they appear far before the film’s release. Good ads and media campaigns can boost a film’s success. On the other hand, they can have an impact on film adversely because of the poor and undesired quality. These problems need to be addressed in detail before the promotion of a particular film.

Even though the shots and the locations are carefully selected, there can be various flaws which need consistent attention if they should not have harmful effects on the public. There can be technical errors, lighting errors, complete mismatch of the backgrounds or even in the overall quality of the shots taken. These ill manifestations that come on the ads or media trailers or any other such media are to be isolated before they come to the scrutiny of the public eye.

The scope and possibilities of image editing service is endless. An unwelcome background can be altered and a tantalizing scenic backdrop can be transported to a shot through clipping path/Clipping path services.

For example, suppose in the much adored James Bond movie, a shot has been taken in Los Angeles and the art promoter wants to show off the scenic beauty of the English country side in the posters, as fancies have no bounds! Are you thinking how this is possible? Simple! The answer for this often posed question is ‘Photo Editing Service ' . The desired makeover can be done through clipping path service where the Pen tool in Photoshop comes into picture. This can make a complete transformation of whole scene.

As actors and actresses are treated almost as idols, even minute flaws, even in their complexion, can cause a great uproar among their fans.

Expert application of blemish correction /Photo Restoration will make the much adored heroes and heroines perfectly in place. Intricate hairstyles can be made attractive through image masking services.

Terrific and delightful changes can be attributed to images by addition or deletion of features or images through the powerful Photo manipulation which give the pictures a hypnotic and larger than life effect. Improper lighting or camera lens settings will cast artificial colour tones in the shot, a complete displeasure to the eyes. Through Photo colouring , these negative aspects can be avoided which would add to the quality of the ads or other means of film promotion. Image quality can be given a pinch of rich look through Photo enhancement.

In short, the skillfull hands of image editing services run through all the areas of film advertisement campaigns for the clean, impressive and constructive promotion of films as a whole.

Some of them are overburdening of manpower, cost increase, wastage of creative time and energy etc. Much of the valuable time and energy is deviated to the string of editing processes which could have been easily diverted to many other indispensable purposes.

One of the most advantageous aspect of outsourcing to image clipping companies is that you are escaping the stress of recruiting additional staff for the editing work. Recruiting new staff necessitates the producers to look for various avenues to pay them which in turn causes unnecessary and additional expenses and wastage of a lot of creative time and energy. By outsourcing the editing works, all their attention can be focused on the valuable commercial aspects of the movie which would make it a big hit in the industry.
