FXhome PhotoKey Pro has been designed to help professional photographers to batch-remove green screen backgrounds from their portrait photos and replace them with a new image. Thanks to the program’s ease of use, this excellent photo editor can actually be used and enjoyed by anyone. Besides, this app comes with a set of stunning filters and effects to help you enhance your photographs.

The program offers you an attractive black interface with a clear main menu and a toolbox with specific tags for the foreground and the background of your pictures. They work as the two main layers, though you can add more layers and overlays if needed. As soon as you load a picture with a green screen in the background, the program will turn that green screen into a transparent background using its high-quality chroma key algorithm. Now all you have to do is load a new image background and make all the necessary adjustments.

You can fine-tune the chroma key applied by the program by tweaking a wide array of settings. Then, you may want to resize the foreground and move it around the background image until they both fit your needs. Besides, you can apply a number of effects and filters to correct, enhance, and add your personal touch to your photographs. You can tweak the saturation, color temperature, color balance, hue, vibrance, and blur levels (among others), and add a vignette, a focus blur, or a bleach bypass effect to them to produce truly professional shots.

Whenever you are happy with the results, you can then use all the settings applied to edit any number of photographs thanks to the program’s support for batch processing. Alternatively, you can set a hot folder that the program will monitor at all times – it will process any image coming into that folder, be it directly from your camera or from a different location. PhotoKey Pro will then save your resulting images as JPEG, PNG, or high-quality TIFF files.

It doesn’t matter how fluent you are with computers and image editors – FXhome PhotoKey Pro will do all the hard work for you, so that you can focus on your own creativity. The resulting images will surely surprise you in the best possible way. This is not a cheap software tool, but that is what it takes to obtain a high-end professional product.
