Just wondering if there is a way to add multiple foreground pictures in a project? For example I want to have my 2 different pictures of me in one pictures...is it possible within Photokey?

Nope, you can't use more than one foreground layer in a single composite. If you want more than one person in the foreground, then you have to either

A) take a greenscreen photo of all the people together, which obviously won't work for two pictures of yourself, or

B) Composite the first person in, Export the image, then import that image as a background and add a new layer to it, with a second greenscreen image.

If you go with optoin B), make sure you export to PNG so that you don't have any image degradation with each iteration.
