    I've been working with images shot in front of a green screen and I am
    cutting out the background and copy the image to a template layer then
    printing them out on a 5 x 7 photo paper, I am looking for tips,
    pointers and just plain help :)

    1. Are there template/themes for sale anywhere
    2. What type of printer is best for this type of work (disub or can I
    get away with something cheaper)
    3. After I remove the background (magic wand, in photoshop) the edge of
    the photo is
    sharp, how can I soften, want to make it look more natural on the
    template (Mountains)

    Has anyone had any experience doing this onsite at a school, convention

    etc and what are the best step like with adobe, here it the method I am

    currently thinking of using;

    1. Open both image and template
    2. Adjust image resolution and size
    3. Cut background out
    4. Feather
    5. Copy image to template
    6. Flatten image
    7. Save as jpg
    8. Print

    Thank you in advance for any help!
