Hi Everyone. I've been using Photo Key Batch now for a couple of school portrait shoots and it works fantastic. I would like to take this to the next level and be able to shoot directly into Photo Key and have a back ground selected that is automatically applied. That way I can show the school exactly how the portrait will look with the background and they are not looking at just a green screen. Also, I shoot with a Nikon d-50. What would be a good camera capture software pgm that will display photos right into your laptop strait from the camera. I used Camlynx before with a portrait company but that is just a little bit above my budget. Anything out there that is reasonable for small time portrait photgraphers.

Thanks! I use Pinnacle Studio Plus 11...didn't know it had camera capture capabilities. I'll have to read the book. Thanks again.

Nikon has their Camera Control software that allows you to shoot tethered. I'm shooting school pictures as well but I'm processing each photo as soon as it's shot.
I use Camera Control Pro 2 with my Nikon D3 and the standard PhotoKey software. The jpgs immediately appear in a directory on my laptop. I click the change button on the import tab and select the new picture. It appears keyed to the selected background and I click print.
Then, it's on to the next kid.
