The clip-path property of CSS is used to clip the particular section of the image such that part of the image inside the section is shown and part of the image outside the section is not shown.

Syntax:

clip-path: <clip-source> | <basic-shape> | <geometry-box> | none;

Property value:  All the properties are described well with the example below.

<basic-shapes>: It includes some shapes like circles, rectangles, ellipse, etc that clips the given image.

Example 1: This example displays the basic use of the clip-path property to insert the specific shapes that clip the given image.
