I have always used Hawth's tools (I have 3D Analyst not Spatial Analyst), but with the upgrade the tools disappeared....  Can I still get Hawth's tools to work with 10 or is there a function to clip by polygon that I missed?

I have approx. 100 images that I need to clip to field boundaries (polygon layer).

Thank you.

You can use a toolbox.

Its in Data Management Tools -> Raster -> Raster Processing -> Clip

In here, you can tell it to clip to an irregularly shaped polygon.

After you specify the shapefile to clip to as your Output Extent, then you also need to ensure that you put a checkmark beside the 'Use Input Features for Clipping Geometry' option.

Is that what you needed?

Perfect.  Thank you.

For some reason, I thought that would give me extents and not the polygon boundary.

Hi, you can use Spatial Analyst Tool Extract by Mask or Extract by Polygon.

Hi everybody,

The tool Extract By Mask seems to work, however, is there a way to get jpg as the output?

You can specify the output type by changing the extension in the output dataset box to Raster.jpg instead of Raster.tif, Raster.img or whatever it currently is.

Don has the correct workflow.  Use the clip under Data Management > Raster > Raster Processing. If you do not specify the input geometry, you will receive the bounding extents of the polygon.  The output format of the raster is controlled by adding extensions. So .jpg for jpeg, .tif for tiff and so forth.  The only limit is the raster to be output must have the band combination/bit depth for the desired format. 

Extract by Mask will also perform the clip, but Spatial Analyst is required.

Is there a way to clip a raster with a polygon but keep the outer portion? (ie, to create a donut?)

Thanks
