Green Screen Background Applies to Original Image Size

Crops are not destructive in FLOW and apply to image after background is applied

When using the Green Screen application it is important to note:

  1. Installed backgrounds are sized to 8x12
  2. Backgrounds are applied to the original image BEFORE the crop (see below for more info.)
  3. Best to use the lasso tool instead of the brush tool

Backgrounds are applied to original image before the crop is set

*This is important to know in case the image is shot looser on some subjects*
  1. When an image is dropped in FLOW, if the subject is low on the shot then the background might not appear in the location expected when rendered
  2. Above you can see that the head locations for the subjects are in slightly different locations
  3. The crop tool in FLOW applies the crop for the print after the image is rendered onto the background
  4. The crop on the left will have a different portion of the background than the crop on the right
  5. The images above show what will print when the image is submitted to us
  6. Note how the left image is not showing the 1" mark and the right image is
    1. This demonstrates that a real background image will be printed with different portions of the background on the final print

To correct for this

  1. The images should be shot more consistently (i.e. the heads should be in the same space within the camera) <or> re-cropped in a photo editing software like PhotoShop
  2. The left image needs to be re-cropped so that the subject's head/body is in a location more consistent with the first (i.e. re-crop so that the head is moved up)
      1. When the newly rendered image is sent, it will have a more consistent portion of the background showing on the print (see below)
