Photoshop Clipping Paths Made Easy
by kp

A quick way to create a clipping path in Photoshop on an image is to use the Magic Wand tool and Make Work Path feature.

  1. Choose the Magic Wand from the Toolbox
  2. Click on the background of the image
  3. Go to the Path palette
  4. Choose Make Work Path from the menu
  5. Set the Tolerance at 0.5
  6. After the path is created, re-save the Work Path under a new name
This trick works best if the image has a clean background and edges.
