My question is how to use the program when clothes are green.And if there is a tool to separate the clothes from the background which is it?
Thanks in advance smile

No. You have to use a different color. any shade of green will throw your key off. If it's absolutely necessary to wear green clothes then try a blue screen. smile

As the Dude says, the best solution is to use a bluescreen during the shoot.

If this isn't possible you can use PhotoKey's masking capabilities to manually select areas to retain.
