English translation:clipping path or cropping ?
Explanation:
Détourage :

C'est une technique qui consiste à isoler une partie de l'image et à ne conserver que la partie sélectionnée. Le détourage s'effectue à partir d'une image numérisée. Il existe deux procédés :

- le détourage automatique,
- le détourage manuel.

Le détourage automatique sera d'autant plus précis que les bords de l'élément à détourer sont nets. Le détourage manuel s'effectue au moyen de la souris ou d'un stylet.

clipping (sense 1)
Process of setting graphics display boundaries. The clipping volume is defined by the window, near and far clipping planes, and projectors of the corners of the window. Data on the planes forming the edges are considered to be within the volume. (2) The conversion of all tones lighter than a specified gray level to white, or darker than a specified gray level to black, causing loss of detail. This also applies to individual channels in a color image.

clipping path
Precise selection area of image which is exportable to an illustration or page lay-out program.

cropping
Precise sizing of a photographic or digital image, selecting a portion of the total image area.

Cropping is when you want to include only a specific part of an image and get rid of the rest.
