Hi everybody, I was trying to take a photo from Photoshop to PhotoKey4 by selecting the object then put it on a background that I have already taken out the white leaving a checkerboard. Also I tried selecting the object and putting it on a background that I made green. I also flatten both images. It is not working for me, is this possible? Thank you for your time.

I'm not quite understanding what it is you are trying to do, could you explain a bit more?

I'm not sure what I'm doing either! I was being redundant, what I was trying to do I can do in Photoshop. Just making things harder for myself, sorry to bother you guys!

Yeah, definitely redundant.
It's kind of like keying a person in front of a bluescreen, then putting them on a green background so you can key them again.

Once you've isolated a subject in Photoshop to where you have a "clear" checkerboard background behind them, there's no value in placing that over a green background color so you can key it. You've already got the cut-out done!
