Then boom - it's only a partial software for the blue/green screen.

There is a problem, though, if you want to fully benefit from this wonderful extraction: **Every wrinkle, crease, and fold in the green cloth has to be ironed out.

The full name of this product is the FXhome PhotoKey 2 Lite. That should have given me a clue.

Right off the bat, FXhome PhotoKey2 Lite and I got off on the wrong foot. I've never before encountered a licensed version of a $70.00 program (not a free or trial version) that is so insistent in trying to force me to upgrade to a more expensive version. It begins from within the installation wizard; continues on the introductory video; "upgrade now" is actually one of the tools in the toolbox; and every grayed-out control has a pop up window indicating that you should upgrade now if you want that feature. When you consider just how many options are grayed out (half the filters, for example) that is a lot of irritating prompts.

First, the positive: the program does an outstanding job removing the chroma green. Even the green that shows up between hair and inside any nick and cranny of your subject is removed. Not only that, but there is no green spill or fringe left on the subject which, on other extraction filters I have used require going in and editing a slight green edge or a slight green color cast or reflection. I have used Photoshop and third-party extraction plug ins that don't work as well or as fast. It is a dead-on extraction and it happens instantly. When your image comes into the software interface, every trace of green is already gone. Absolutely amazing.

There is a problem, though, if you want to fully benefit from this wonderful extraction:

**Every wrinkle, crease, and fold in the green cloth has to be ironed out.

**The light has to be perfectly balanced so that your subject doesn't cast a shadow (as would happen if you used a camera flash).

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Initially, I thought that the software would allow you to process video against a green screen, but it turns out that the included software edits photos only. That being said, I put up the green screen (without ironing first) for a quick test, snapped a couple of pictures and was really impressed at how the software removed out the green. It was a pretty clean edit.

I have Adobe Premeire Elements for video editing and I tried the green screen with some simple video shots, and it worked well. Definitely iron out the wrinkles if you have a video editing program that you want to try out the chroma key feature to get the best results.

Pros:
+ Software is fairly easy to use
+ Adjusting the size and rotation of the foreground (usually the people in your picture) was really easily and worked well.
+ The screen is large enough that an adult can stand in front of it and be covered head to toe.
+ The software lets you export your photos to Tiff, Jpeg, and Png.
+ The green screen worked well when using it for video chroma key with a separate video editing program

Cons:
- It seemed like the program didn't like it much if someone was wearing something blue against the green screen. The blue colors stuck out like neon in the pictures.
- This is the Lite version, so yes, they are trying to get you to upgrade to the pro
- The included backgrounds weren't all that appealing. We've had more fun using out own.
- The included software is for editing pictures only, not video. You'll need something like Adobe Premiere Elements for video chroma key

This product is one that begs for a "half star" option, as it sits between 2 and 3 stars. It gets two stars primarily for the limited features in the included software (and the pricey upgrade path to the full-featured version which is pushed hard in the "Lite" package).

This package contains a 5' x 7' chroma key green screen fabric backdrop and an editing application (PhotoKey 2 Lite by FXHome).

The green screen cloth was simple to prepare and hang(the vendor recommends either ironing or tumbling in the dryer, as wrinkles in the cloth can create shadows in the image). I expected much lighter/thinner material, and was pleasantly surprised at how substantial it was.

In the world of "lite", "express", "compact" and other limited-feature software packages seeking to induce consumers to upgrade to their full-featured companions, PhotoKey 2 Lite should win a prize for amount of functions it limits.

Among the limitations in this "Lite" version:
-while basic cropping is available, it accomplished by a rather unintuitive set of slider bars; every other image editor I've ever used allowed you to mouse over the cropping area with a selection tool. Very odd,
-NONE of the "Mask" functions area available.
-four of the eight "Filter" functions are unavailable.
-three of the four "Effects" functions are unavailable.
-"Overlay" functionality (whatever it is) is available via download, but only after you've purchased something else from FXHome.

PhotoKey 2 Lite includes 100 digital background images to use with the pictures you take in front of the green screen. They are relatively high resolution .jpg images of various thematic, seasonal, regional and conceptual subjects. Note: since they are .jpg, you can also use any of your own .
