My images in Photokey 2 have more saturation within Photokey than when I open them on Photoshop CS3. I do have the color workspace in PS set to sRGB.

What could be the reason?

I'm not sure, but if you render one out, then open the rendered version in Photoshop again, is the color still odd?

Whether I export to png, jpg or tiff the colors are more muted and tend towards blue.
I have Photoshop set with sRGB as the working space. I am using a calibrated monitor.

I think I figured out my problem.
I am very new to the software and hadn't played with the key settings.
If you look at the following linked screen grab you will see the original image on the left, the first tiff (not really combined with a background) processed with only green key selected but no other adjustments in teh key menus and on the right another image on which besides checking the green key I also changed to extended spill surpriession and used color threshold of zero. You can see that the skirt is a much better color.

You can see that on the right image the skirt is a better color, but the entire image has less saturation.

Ah, yes, the extended spill suppression can be quite useful in adjusting the colors back to where they originally were. And you can always use the saturation control in the Filters (and the other filters as well) to adjust the color further to suit your taste.
