This is a huge collection of digital backdrops and backgrounds .
It contains 3 volumes in one convenient package
They are in JPG format, and sizes on average range from 1280x960 up to 3600x2400
These jpg files are smaller files than the .tifs but they are still high quality, great resolution and perfect for any photographer amateur or professional that wants to be able to add quick realistic backgrounds. There's something for everyone. Of course that also means there will be some among them that won't suit your needs, But with such a huge and varied collection, there will be lots that will. Most are suitable for portraits. A person in front of them would look natural. Some are not.. The space series, and close-up series for example are more suited for someone that wants to have some fun with photoshop and see themselves in space, skydiving or 5 inches tall standing in the palm of a hand.

Set 4 - Vectors
600 Vectors Overlays as AI files (for Adobe Illustrator) Unlike a backdrop that would be layered behind a subject. These go over a portrait or backdrop as a decoration or accent.
Also for laying over a photograph or subject. The part that looks white here is transparent and allows the picture to show through.
But you can use it as a backdrop too just by making it the bottom layer. You can also lay it over a solid color or different background to creat a new backdrop.
Frames can also be used over a photo or over a second image or color to create a custom backdrop.
More traditional backdrops. but in .eps and .ai (vector) formats
Set 5 - 6 volumes
This set Has several sets of images that require more work than the other sets. But the finished project is great because of it.
Instead of just pasting someone onto it, you may have to darken the original or shoot it in a way that matches the backdrop. The sets that I'm referring to are pretty self explanatory just by their names. Hazy shades, Vibrant colors, dark, Fantasy/Cgi/animation They can create some great shots with a little imagination and effort.
The sizes in this set are good for any digital work and standard prints such 4x5 or 5x6 but are not intended for blown up enlargements.
An old look - designed to create pictures that look old or retro such as from an old family album or an old postcard
Another old set. No replacing the background though. Keep your background and just age the whole thing.
Fantasy Cgi and animation.
Sunrise and Sunsets
Graphics - Non backdrop graphics
Here are some answers to the most common questions, but feel free to write me anytime with any questions you have. I'll be happy to answer them for you.
1. What is Chromakey? - according to wikipedia - Chroma key is a technique for mixing two images or frames together, in which a color (or a small color range) from one image is removed (or made transparent), revealing another image behind it.
In other words, It allows you to replace the original background with a new custom one.
2. Do I need a greenscreen? - No, If you are a pro, you may want to get one to look more professional. But you can usually get results just as good by using a bedsheet and even just a solid color wall. Then you can use your photo software to remove that color. Even if its a natural background with lots of different colors and objects, you can still cut out the person by hand. Most every program has a tool for cutting , trimming or cropping. You can go around the person with it and cut them out, and then paste them onto the new background. This method may take about a minute per image where the other way is instant but they both can get good results.
3. Do I need special software? I include a free chromakey program for Windows PCs with this order. But you can also use most photo viewing or editing software. A lot of my customers say they use Photoshop and that its really good. I have used Paint Shop Pro and Photosuite and they both worked fine as well. As long as you can cut, crop or trim an image, it should work. If the program has a color selection tool, then its even easier.
