Our PhotoKey users are the best in the business. Our community is over 80,000 photographers strong and are talented in multiple areas – from event photography and studio portraiture to magnificent cosplay composites.

Some of you work with whole teams of photographers, others juggle multiple freelance jobs – many simply love experimenting with the green screen photography process as a hobby. Over the past year we’ve paid close attention to exactly which features our photographers want from their on-set assistant and creative software, and put our talented development team to work.

PhotoKey 8 Pro is the result. It’s the best version we’ve ever released, with some massive upgrades and completely new features included.

Incredible batch processing for events

PhotoKey 8 Pro has raised the bar again with multiple new features added […] Event photography has never looked so good!

Bulk up with 250 included backdrops

A few years ago, we had a massive pack of backgrounds available to purchase alongside PhotoKey which were a popular choice for professional photographers looking for some more imagery options. This time around, we bring 250 new, high quality backdrops and include them in the price of PhotoKey so everyone gets the chance to use them. With themes like Adventure, Beauty, Corporate Portrait, Gothic, London Sightseeing, Pets, Seniors, Studio Background and Urban, you won’t be stuck for ideas!

For the creative types who could do with a new backdrop every day for the next two years, we’ve got an additional purchasable pack from the store with 500 more professional images, or the bundled PhotoKey 8 Studio.

The Photoshop plugin now supports Actions

We know that thousands of users flip between Photoshop and PhotoKey for more complicated composites. It’s now possible to record a Photoshop Action that involves the PhotoKey filter and have it remembered – saving time on complex operations.

New advanced keying techniques

We’ve taken keying past simple green screen – use new luminosity keying for perfect results with white and black backgrounds, and color matting for improving the appearance of your cut-outs.

HiDPI support on Windows

We’re giving some love to Windows users, with an update to PhotoKey 8 Pro fully embracing HiDPI and delivering a beautiful, high resolution interface. Now it doesn’t matter whether you’re on a Mac or PC – you get to enjoy a super sharp and clear interface every time.

New creative filters and effects

We’ve got drop shadows, 2 or 4-Color gradients, Auto Skin Tone and a bunch of other new effects in PhotoKey 8 Pro. All carefully chosen as important and exciting upgrades for our existing customers.

Go Incognito
