This Spektral got its start by developing a software with a technique called “CUTOUT”, that allowed photographers to digitally pluck an individual down to the stray hairs from one green screen such as background and plunk them down in front of another. Now, this technique is called “CLOUD CUTOUT”. It provides a path to do same in the digital cloud, photographers once did by hand with film and later did by mouse in photo editing software.
