    I'm wanting to get straight in my head the difference or link between the different uses of the term "Clip / Clipping".

    iTrainScotland

      Clipping is used for changing the histogram to utilise the full dynamic range. There I take the term as meaning the same as trimming. 

      It's also used when paths or shapes create the outline for a mask - clipping mask - again that seems like "trimming" to me.

      "Clipping" is also used when making an adjustment layer only affect certain pixel layers - I think of that as like attaching two sheets of paper together with a "paper clip". 

       

      So the term's being used for at least 2 or 3 different things? Or is there some principal that links them ?   Thanks
