What does deep-etch mean?

Deep-etching means removing the background of an image and leaving the foreground, usually with a transparent background, so you can put any background behind the foreground. This is achieved by using a photo editing program like Photoshop. It is not easy to achieve seamlessly and should be performed by a professional designer. I am sure you have seen poor deep-etches with hard lines that look as though they have been cut out of a magazine.
