How to clip shirt images for e-commerce websites?
November 4, 2021

Do you have one or more shirt photos to clip but don’t know how to go about it? Discover the two clipping solutions we offer and choose the one that suits you best: clipping manually by yourself or else getting the clipping done professionally by experts.

1. Clip your shirt yourself with the help of our tutorials

The first option is to consult a clipping tutorial so that you can try to clip your shirt image yourself.

If you are an absolute beginner in this area, an excellent way to get acquainted with the basics is to consult our general tutorial on clipping images. This article presents the main tools offered by Photoshop, from the simplest to the most complicated: the Lasso, Polygonal Lasso, Magnetic Lasso, Magic Wand, Quick Selection, Pen, and Color Range.

While the last two techniques are far more difficult to master, they will also produce the best results for shirt images. This is why we are tackling them separately, in greater detail, in two other tutorials that you may wish to consult: how to clip an image using the Pen tool and how to clip an image using Color Range.

In general, the Pen tool is more than adequate when it’s a matter of clipping shirts. As shirts don’t have complex shapes, you can create and use Bézier curves for them quite easily compared with other types of objects.

2. Use our online professional clipping service
