I have high quality pictures taken with my Canon 50D and when I process them using Photokey, I lose the skin and other important colors. I read it here that we can play with the changes but I tried with no luck.

color is getting saturated badly. Please help with me.

I have puchased the latest photokey software.

What settings are you using for the spill suppression? Can you please show us a picture for reference? If you don't have webspace, you can upload one to www.imageshack.us for free, and give us the link here. Seeing a picture will greatly help our ability to identify the problem and get you sorted.

Setting the spill suppression to "extended" seems to leave the color pretty much right where it is on my end. You never answered my question about spill suppression in my earlier post though, so its hard to offer any more specific instruction.

Yeah, I guess some of the blue does get a bit purple. Can you give us one more link, to an image with the greenscreen in it as well? Preferably one of the entire photo, as then we can play with different settings to see what works or offer other advice as needed. Thanks.
