Pictures with filigree outlines (e.g. hair, fur, branches, leaves, smoke etc.), cannot be cut out along clipping paths, and will, therefore, be processed with alpha masks.
These masks contain transparency and color data. They allow these pictures to look clean on all backgrounds, without any pixel loss. We deliver graphics in psd, tif, or png format for further manual or software-based processing.
