Ashley Griggs Senior editor

The following review written by one of the Software Informer contributors applies to version 5.1
Photo editors are not rare these days, but when it comes to finding an advanced application to help you change the “green background” from photos, well that's a different story.
FXhome PhotoKey was one of the few programs that allowed me to perform this task.

This program has to offer a large number of visual effects, size configurations and templates to integrate in the background of any of your photos. Being a beginner user, I got a bit intimidated by the amount of buttons and settings, but its comprehensive help guide and tutorials helped me manage the program with ease.

The preview window will display the new changes in a matter of seconds and once you finish with the editing, you can save the resulted photo to various image formats.

Still, when uploading images with no green background, the program fails to display the image at high-quality in the preview window.

To me, the program seems to be a bit pricey, but I guess professional photo editors wouldn't mind paying this much for such a useful application. Therefore, it's up to you to decide whether it's worth acquiring FXhome PhotoKey or not.
