Specialist Clipping Paths Companies

Hi guys, not been on here for a wee while but I have a need for a clipping path specialist company that comes recommended.

These guys are based in the UK but use oversea labour force http://www.clippingpathspecialist.com/

Any one used them before or can recommend an alternative - I'm shooting 500 - 600 images as cut outs on grey for a new client.

Cheers

Pete

Why not do it yourself in photoshop, should take less than a minute per image, use quick selection tool in CS5/6, then refine mask (remember to decontaminate colours), if they are all on the same background with the same lighting, click save settings. For hair click smart radius then paint over hair strands - it's very quick and impressive.

I fancied out sourcing it and not doing it myself Grin - I've used Magic Extractor before and it works well. PS Elements 9.

Yes the background / grey cove will be clean and tidy and the lighting should be able to be left once set - I freelance for Argos and that's how we do it - then outsource the cut outs.

It's a grey cove due to translucent / glass / clear plastic products.

You make me wonder if I'm doing something wrong Nick - I have never found it nearly so straight-forward.
Something you mention that I have found a help more recently, is doing separate selections for body and head/hair.
