When doing a clipping path around a barstool I make the exterior path, the then interior parts betweem the legs.  I go to make a selection, and te ecterior portions are selected, but not the interior...  How do I select the whole path, so I can change the ectire background to white?  I can see my whole path in blue... Only the exterior is highlighted when my selection is made.  HELPScreen Shot 2020-10-11 at 10.51.13 AM.png

WHat are the subPathItems Path Operations? Have you set them to »Exclude Overlapping Shapes« or not? 

Please select all the subPathItems and post a meaningful screenshot including the Options Bar.

You didn’t actually select the subPathItems so the screenshot is meaningless.

• Path Selection Tool 

• Direct Selection Tool 

• cmd-click with the Pen Tool 

• …

 

You created the individual subPathItems so you determined how they would interact. 

 

Why do you want to »change the ectire background to white«? How wilo the image be used ultimately?

We shoot this product in showrooms.  The images need to be clipped and put on white backgrounds, drop shadows added, then used in advertising pieces, and websites for retail sale.  

 

I have never had this issues before.  Photoshop updated, and now I can draw a path (perimeter as well as interior areas.  When I make my selection to drop the background it only includes the exterior portions.Screen Shot 2020-10-12 at 9.13.41 AM.png

»I have never had this issues before.«

You created the Path, so don’t try to blame anybody else unless you can demonstrate that a real problem exists … and so far you haven’t even demonstrated what the subPathItems’ Path Operations settings are. 

Once again: Please select all the subPathItems and post a meaningful screenshot including the Options Bar.

Could you provide a jpg with just the Path? 

 

The Path Operation setting should indeed provide for a different result, so please try cmd-alt-clicking the outermost subPathItem (to select all its pathPoints) and cutting it (cmd-X), then pasting it – does the display in the Layers Panel change?

This is probably the best way to troubleshoot.

 

We don't need the picture in high resolution.

Important: Your path should be a Clipping Path.

That paths panel looks like Subtract Front Shape has been used  (white on the outside all grey inside the outer path.

Are you sure Exclude overlapping paths was set throughout?

Ok.

Your path icon is very small. But seems to be ok.

 

This is just for control

Please activate the Path Selection Tool (black arrow)

Drag "in a large rectangle" over all paths.

All paths should now be selected.

 

What happens if you use: [Ctrl]+Click  on the icon in your Path Panel
