Good evening,

I am wondering what would be the best way to remove tiny lines of color that are left over after removing a blue screen background. I attach screenshot.

Kind regards

Hello Astropilot1958,

Welcome to the PhotoDirector forum laughing

I'm afraid the only solution with PhD is a fair bit of painstaking work. However well light you green/blue screen is, PhD (in Background Removal) is bound to "miss bits", especially with hair & finer details.

All that can be done is to zoom in (the more the better) to manually fine tune the edges. In the example below, cleaning up that small section took quite a few minutes. Zoomed to 100% using brush sizes between 1 & 5.



It's doable with PhD, but using dedicated graphics software is likely to render better results more quickly.

Hello Pix,

Thank you for the quick and helpful reply! That is what I ended up doing. However, I see that you rmoved the green screen using the remove background under the guided tab. I used the magic wand under the select area menu on the edit tab. I saw in some tutorial videos that it is also done creating a mask layer and using the Black/white pencil tool.

Is there a preferred way for doing this, or do all techniques lead to similar results?

You mentioned dedicated software. Which software would that be for that purpose?

Kind regards
