Hello Folks!

I hope you will help me. I am having problems with removing greenscreen from picture. The original picture is like this:

and after editing with quick selection tool and refine edge tool I got this:

The question is, how do I get rid off this green glow effect, but I dont want to lose details, like shift edge feature. Thanks for your sugestions and advices.

Look at my quick and dirty trial:for the green cast on the baby's face: do the same with hue and keep close to the place where you want to take away the cast.

Since you have your selection already made, I would go to select> Refine edge and play with some adjustment until you get a result you are happy with.

In the future, a quick way to cut out a green screen would be to use the color range tool under the select drop down. Once you have selected color range, Use the eyedropper tool that appears, hold down the SHIFT key while clicking and dragging around the green areas you need to remove, ideally the background in the popup color range box should become white. If you think you’ve removed too much, hold down the ALT key and click on the area where you want to deselect. Click OK when you are happy with the selection

If you get your lightning correct, you will avoid that green reflection on the baby's face. It's probably a question of distance.

You may also try davescm​'s receipt. That too looks promising. My solution is destructive (alters the original image), his solution is reversible.

Hi

1. Put a new empty layer directly above the masked image layer.

2. Set the blending mode of that empty layer to color

3. Alt click on the border between the empty layer and masked layer in the layers panel. A small down arrow will appear to indicate the new layer is clipped to the masked layer below

4. Take a soft brush and click with the Alt key to pick up colour from the head. Brush over the edge - onto the new empty layer. The green colour will change to the head colour. The clipping mask will prevent you painting over the edge. Work round the edges - alt clicking to change colour where needed.
