I have 650 photos to take on my digital camera for a project at work to put in our company catalog and on our website. Lately I've been taking photos and removing the background with photoshop clipping paths. This process is extremely tedious. Will photo key serve as this function. Would I just snap photos in front of a blue/green screen, put photo on computer and use photokey to put my needed white background behind object? If so, where would I get a bluescreen or greenscreen?

Anyone's help would be great, thanks.

Your first point of call should probably be to check out the photokey product page: http://fxhome.com/photokey. On which I think you'll agree it makes it painfully clear that photokey is a keying application, keying being 'background removal' as you call it.

Greenscreens can be got from tubetape.com
