We all know QuarkXPress is one of the most popular design and layout
software. You can import scanned or digital, high-resolution color images for
high quality offset printing. You can add features such as transparency,
drop-shadow, web functionality, color management, etc to enhance your design and
can also make high-res PDF files that can directly be used for the printing
process. Let’s now see how we can take a cut-out of a product.

Most of the times we have images with a color background and normally Quark
designers take their cut-outs in Photoshop or other image editing programs and
placed them in Quark. But for taking the same in Quark, change the clipping path
position to Quark and you are done. Pls note that if you have an image with a
white background, then select the image box and go to >Item >Clipping to open
Modify window. Here, select the ‘Clipping’ and ‘Runaround’ menu and change to
‘Non white areas’.

Direct Hit!
