blue screen knockout

We have been listening and working…

We have expanded our green screen image extraction technology to include blue screen!
A number of our school photography customers have asked us to help them deliver ID cards and admin CDs faster to schools while maintaining the ability to offer different backgrounds to parents. Utilizing our green knock-out technology we built a few years ago, we’ve now expanded it to be capable of knocking out images photographed on a blue screen background.
