    Clipping paths in PS
    Alright guys, its has been awhile since I used the clipping paths in PS. Please help me refresh my memory.

    I need to clip out an image in PS and place it in AI without having that annoying white box around the image.

    Can I use the marquee tool instead of the pen tool to make a selection in paths and using the clipping paths option?

    Either one. If you use paths, you have to convert to a selection anyway. Use whichever tool you're comfortable with.
    If you use the marquee, use Lasso.
    Always listen to experts. They’ll tell you what can’t be done and why. Then do it!

    You could also command-click the alpha channel of the image, command-J to dup the layer, and it's already clipped for you!
