Green Tint on subject's blonde hair

The blonde hair is so fine, that it is reflecting the color of the green screen, or the green screen is coming through the hair color. When I add a mask to it, it doesn't help. I have tried to adjust the various colors, but then the subject's hair picks up the backgrounds.
Any ideas?

What settings are you using on the Spill Suppression filter? If the green spill isn't being suppressed, it would suggest that the settings in that tool should be adjusted.

Can you post a portion of your original photo file being comp'ed as well as a description (or portion) of the background you're putting into the finished image?

Even just a 400x400 square at original resolution just showing the hair and shoulder maybe. This way you may be able to get specific input and examples based on your exact situation.

Also ... do you have Photoshop? For fine control of comps like this, I run the shot through PK4Pro first to knock out the screen, but then take the resulting PNG export along with the original photo into Photoshop for more detailed tweaking.

Thanks for the info. My reply just disappeared! So....I am retyping it.

I have worked with the Spill Suppression - doesn't help.
I have photoshop and will try that idea. I don't know how to upload a photo to this site.
I have PK3Pro - is there that much of a difference with PK4Pro? Just wondering.

Thanks again for the help.

The Spill Suppression filter is just as excellent in PhotoKey 3 as it is in PhotoKey 4, it wasn't changed. You tried all the different Spill Suppression types, and the green was never removed? Unless the Spill Suppression filter is disabled, I'm not sure that's even possible.

As far as posting an image, you have to host it elsewhere, so upload it somewhere and then just give us a link. www.imageshack.us is a free option.

Her hair picked up the green reflection from the green screen. It worked on another photo, but not hers. Thanks for the help.
