ChromaKeys is a program which is used to quickly remove or mask portions of an image.
Chroma keys may be used for a variety of purposes including:
- Background removal for photographs
- General purpose image masking
- Icon generation
- Cutting out portions of an image
- Creating irregular shaped images People often spend hours trying to remove a background from a photo, meticulously creating intricate shapes only to end with dissapointing results.
Using ChromaKeys, instead of just selecting a single color to act as the chroma key, we can choose several colors (each with a tolerance). In fact, we can just select a region of the image, and obtain all the colors within that region to act as chroma keys.
We can also mark areas of the image as opaque, to ensure that the main image will remain intact in those areas. Conversely, we may also mark other areas as transparent.
Chroma keys makes image masking easy.
