Introduction

Explore the possibilities with H&H’s full green/blue screen program!

When H&H set out to provide green/blue screen capabilities to our professional studio customers, we decided that the real business opportunity was in all of the creative prints, specialty products and multiple additional sale opportunities that a subject image without a background would present.

H&H made the decision to look to this future and built the process to support knocking out green/blue screen images up front in high resolution and archive these knocked out images so they are available to use and sell from at no additional charge.

H&H has a one-time charge for knock out. After that there are no additional image processing charges. Your png images are available to use for service item orders, reorders, additional backgrounds, and multiple sale opportunities for 9 months. You may also download your knocked out png images for other uses.

Benefits of Green Screen:

By utilizing green screen technology, you can offer your clients an unlimited number of background options and have access to new and exciting products. All of our current school products and template styles are available for use with green screen workflow.

Benefits of Blue Screen:

Blue screen is intended to solve the problem of quick delivery of ID cards and admin CDs. Blue screen is also a great solution to avoid extra cleanup charges if you photograph green uniforms, photograph on St Patrick’s Day or photograph a graduation that has green caps and gowns.

Jeff Edwards, an H&H client of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, said, “We serve over 150 schools in our area and having the ability to deliver ID cards and images to the school quickly on blue backgrounds has been very well received – the school administrators love it.”

Most yearbooks still require all images to be extracted and consistent backgrounds placed. Blue screen is NOT a way to reduce your costs if your school wants backgrounds that are not on this blue background.

Getting Started:

Background replacement service is available at H&H Color Lab. To ensure your success and allow us to meet your quality expectations we have a certification process and we require that you submit test files. Upon successful completion and evaluation of this test we will authorize the green screen component of H&H workflow software. In order to produce the best possible end results we will provide you with a lighting diagram and approved background information for green screen photography.

Please Note: When using our knockout service, all images in the submitted order must be green screen. Orders cannot contain both green screen and non-green screen images.

Knockout

H&H has a one-time charge for green screen knock out. After that there are no additional image processing charges. Your png images are available to use for service item orders, reorders, additional backgrounds, and multiple sale opportunities for 9 months. You may also download your knocked-out png images for other use.

Included in this price is the cleanup required when the occasional subject wears the same color as the background. If a majority of subjects are wearing clothing that matches the background, additional charges apply.

Improper lighting, exposure, or photographer error requires green screen knockout “cleanup” to the image, and is charged at $0.75 per minute. When this is necessary, and the charges are less than $25, we will continue with the cleanup process and notify you with the reason. When the estimated charges are greater than $25, we will contact you to request studio approval before proceeding with the cleanup process.
