Why use clipping path to remove background? There are several different reasons why the clipping path is favoured nowadays in the photo industries to remove the background from an image:
First concern is quality. There is no other option that can achieve better or the same quality as a clipping path drawn by a pen tool.
A clipping path can be applied to almost any kind of file format including JPG, and then the file can be placed directly into a layout using InDesign, for example. This way the file size can be reduced too.
After gaining sufficient work experience using the pen tool, anybody can deal with it very fast while maintaining a top quality result.
A flat quality can also be applied for the kind of image that has soft edge.
It is the fast, easy and professional way.
I will manually select and crop the object to get sharp and crisp edges.
