To Follow Some Steps Process:
Open the file you want to use for your clipping path tutorial in Photoshop.
From the tool box, select the “Pen Tool” (shortcut key: Ctrl or Cmd + “P”).
Look at the picture on the right.[gap size=”80px”]
Step 2 :
Click on the edge of the element you want to cut out within the image, release the mouse button. After a certain distance, click again on the edge and this time hold and drag your mouse pointer. Once you see the outline is exactly on the edge of the image, release the mouse. Continue doing the same process until you end up at the point where you started your path. Once you see the starting point, click on it to close the path, you are done with the outside path only. See the image below:
Now you need to draw paths for each of the gaps within the image. Start creating a new path starting point the same way you did before and continue drawing until you close the loop with the starting point. Continue drawing paths for all gaps. You are done drawing paths for your image to remove background. See the image below[gap size=”80px”]
How to apply a clipping path to an image?
Once you are done drawing paths all around the portion of the image you want, you then need to apply clipping path on it in order to get the background removed. To do so go to the path palette, located under “Window” menu called “Paths”. Now you will see the paths you just have created are in “Work Path”, double click on it and give it a name. This way your path is saved.

How to remove the background using a path?
1. Once you have a completed path that you want to use to remove the background, bring the “Paths” and “Layer” palette from the “Window” menu.
2. To select the path, press and hold the Control or Command key in your keyboard and click on the path in your path palette.
3. Press and hold the Control or Command key in your keyboard + press the “J” in your keyboard. This way you get a new layer which contains only the object that was inside the path.
4. Take the background layer off. You are done, now the main object remains by itself with a transparent background. See the image below
