    Thank you! Exactly what I needed to watch and learn. The only thing I couldn't find on my version was the background options that you pulled up. I'll keep working on it. Thanks so much!

  2. ARbull says

    how would you treat the white bokeh on the side of the head. It looks distracting.

  3. Ran Fuchs says

    I have lot of problems with long hair. It actually looks quite horrible when trying to separate foreground from background

  4. Frederick Dunn says

    This is funny because I've been using PortraitPro for many years and only just learned that it has a background mask tool. You didn't cover saving the image, as in, can I save it as a png image? Separate from the background? Thanks and nice job.

    Hi Dustin, great tutorial, can you import your own backgrounds into the image

  6. Steve Phyall says

    I've had PortraitPro for a while now and for the most part, it's pretty good when used carefully. What it won't do that well is mask long or curly wild hair. It appears to leave horrible artefacts​ that can't be dealt with afterwards.

    Good Video, I am guessing a less professional shot and great Lighting on the Green Screen would become a bit more of a challenge

    I have used this, but it doesn't seem to be as good or easy as just using photoshop.

    How do i create a background when there is two people in one pic?? It only gives me the option to select male or female and it deletes the other person…I need to create a background with both people in the pic..

    Hi Dustin, you're really funny! Jokes apart, I've Portrait Pro Studio Max for 2 months and IMHO is a really wonderful tool if handled with care. Actually it's a bit complicated to use with, e.g., a model with curly hair.. I'm facing with the tool but still I haven't found the most proper way to do an accurate job… would you mind to help with some additional tips or comments? Greetings from Italy!
