In our company we always used clipping paths for cut out images. I´m investigatin if alpha channels cloud be a better solution for us. In many cases and type of images it´s easier and the reslut is better with alpha channels than traditional clipping path.
But... When I test it, I don´t get the result I predicted. I thought it would be equal as an psd-file with transparancy layer, smooth and nice. But insted, when I in InDesign choose the alpha channel in the menu, Object/Clippingpath/Alpha Channel, it creates a vector path that is quite rough, despite low threshold and tolerans.
Have I missunderstood how it works and does something wrong?
Or.. do you have a better idea of an other technic to rekommend?
