    It doesn’t get any easier than this. The green screen is a brand new thing for me and having this action is so flawless and quick when extracting subjects from your photos. Thanks for the great product.

    I can’t tell you how times saving this tool has been for me! Creating the extraction has been such a time sucker before and now it just takes seconds. Thank you Ben!

    Best and easiest I have used. I was doing all these steps by hand before I purchased this action. It covers everything even removing the leftover green glow from hair and edges. Saved me a bundle of time.

    OMG This Action is a LIFESAVER! So incredibly easy and efficient! I have used other green screen programs before and they were such a pain with getting the green completely removed! THANK YOU So much for creating this Gem!!

    I’ve always avoided shooting on the green screen due to the issue of a bit of color cast, especially in the hair. Ben’s action takes that into account and makes the green screen extraction SO MUCH EASIER! Not only has he added the capability for shooting on a blue background for the instances where you have a green uniform, he continually sends updates that make the program even more efficient.

    This action is so easy to use. I tried extracting images on my own and it wasn’t looking quite right. This action was the perfect fix and so fast to use. Thank you!!

    Aboslutely love how quickly this has sped up my extractions on my Green Screen work. I used to do it all by hand and it would take 30+ min each picture, with Bens action I am down to less then 2 min per picture. thank you Ben.

    This was so easy to use! I worried if I would be able to make it work but I had zero problems! Thank you!

    Since green screen started many years ago, I did not like the outcome of your extracted subject. The details of the strands of hair would not come over from extracting your subject. But when I saw Ben’s actions for green screen extraction – I knew it was finally time to jump in. Very easy to use and makes your composites look real!! Time saver!! Thank you Ben!

    The green extraction tool saves me a bunch of time processing volume shots for kid sports. Takes just a few seconds to extract the subject and place into a background. The extra color adjustment layers that are built in also help to control any extra green spillover. A nice tool to have in the toolbox! Thanks Ben!

    This is an awesome green screen remover. I have used a few and this is by far the easiest action or plugin that I have tried!!! Thanks so much!!!

    I have been using Ben’s action for about a month now, it is super easy to use and he provides the instructions that anyone can follow I highly suggest this is you want to shoot on a green screen.

    If you aren’t using this action for your GS extractions, I don’t know what you are doing with your life. Hands down my new favorite tool.

    Excellent product, saved me hours of background removal, especially as I had photographed teenage girls with lots of flying hair – awesome
