Plants, flowers and animal photos – are among the most popular themes in photography. For professionals it is a daily occurrence to have to edit animal photos or to optimize photos of landscapes and plants (for example, tourism or advertising).
Detailed structures, such as a tree photographed in the wild, are among the most complex of the clippings you can imagine. Above all, when several trees are seen, it is often difficult to distinguish single leaves of one tree unambiguously from a restless background. The many details and the lack of contrasts become the challenge.
But also when clipping the fur or plumage of an animal, most of them fail for experience or for reasons of time. The difficulty increases with uneven backgrounds or if there are hardly any contrast differences, such as dark fur against a dark background or bright fur against a light background. Clipping plants and animals is a task for us: we supply you directly and quickly your desired clipping!
Work with the alpha-channel
Primarily, when clipping, the aim is to separate the desired image element from the image environment to present it against a white or new background. For this purpose, masks and planes are used.
For a precise result, we often work with the alph-channel. In this case, the color channel is determined which has the maximum contrast between the clipping and its surroundings. This is gradually increased to enable a clear separation. However, experience and time are necessary in order to achieve the desired result.
