Why it’s important to look up clipping path reviews
Choosing the wrong clipping path provider could be a simple mishap, but there are worse things that could happen than lost money or more work fixing the edits yourself. In some cases, untrustworthy clipping path service providers may use or even sell your images elsewhere. And if your employer owns the rights or you’ve sold them to a client, this can put you in a legal jam.
Worse, you could put your bank and credit card information in the wrong hands.
Where to find clipping path service reviews
To avoid these worst case scenarios, put on your investigator hat and do some online sleuthing to find out whether the company is reputable. Many clipping path companies feature reviews on their own website, but for honest, unvetted reviews, you’ll want to visit third party sites.
To start, do a simple Google search. Type the name of the company followed by the word “reviews” to see what’s being said about them on the web.
You can browse the results on Google and see what people are saying about the provider you’re considering.
Then you can check third party sites for validated commentary. Here are a few to start with:
Another trick? Search the company name again, but plug in the word “scam” at the end instead of “reviews.” If you have a repeat fraudster on your hands, this should show you the truth.
Pro tip: Remember to not only look at the overall review ratings, but the quantity of reviews. A company called Clipping Path Creative, for example, has a 4-star Trustpilot rating, but there are only three reviews. Compare that to Path's 2,552 Trustpilot reviews with an average “Excellent” rating. It’s clear who is the more reliable choice.
Also worth noting: Trustpilot calls out that it cannot verify how Clipping Path Creative has gotten their reviews. They could all be fake.
How to spot fake or biased reviews
Unfortunately, there are tons of fake reviews out there. While third party sites do their best to monitor and prevent fraudulent customer reviews, it’s impossible to catch all of them. That’s why it’s important to stay vigilant.
Watch for reviewers with generic names like John Smith or lots of random numbers in their name. A spike in the number of reviews over a short period of time can indicate a targeted campaign to boost a company’s rating. Fake reviews are often over-the-top in their praise, while real reviews tend to discuss both the good and the bad.
A study conducted by Cornell University even found that fake reviewers tend to use more personal pronouns, like “I” and “me,” and fill their reviews with unnecessary details and scene-setting in an effort to sound more convincing. So keep an eye out for these tells.
You might also find biased reviews. This review from Fixthephoto, for example, is our competitor — so it’s no surprise that they’ll position their own services more favorably. Make sure you check a variety of sources and look for common customer praise and complaints.
