Sorry,
I am trying the photokey demo to see if it what I am looking for.
I am trying to see what kind of backgrounds are included in program. When I request a background it takes me to my computer.
Does the Photokey program have premade selectable backgrounds I can choose from or do I make my own?
I am a "very" simple user. I want to use the program to post photos of items on an auction page. So far I like this program because it seperates the image from the background much easier than photoshop or others I have tried. I am trying to put my images on a more professional looking background to make my items I am posting in my online store look more professional and consistant.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you very much!

There aren't any backdrop images included with the program, but you can basically import any image you want for a background. For eBay listings or the like, a simple single-color background might prove most effective, which is as simple as creating a new image in Photoshop or whatever image editor you have, and filling it with whatever color you like. then save the image and import it into PhotoKey. If you want some other backgrounds, perhaps more artistic ones, there are some nice ones available here as well as here.

I use www.dreamstime.com and then (if needed) manipulate the image in photoshop before using as a background image.
