If a cardholder or visitor's picture was taken in front of a chroma key screen, you can make the picture background transparent. This is helpful if you create a badge template that has an image in the background.


  1. From the Cardholder management or Visitor management task, select a cardholder, and click Modify ().
    A dialog opens displaying the cardholder or visitor's information.
  2. Click the picture.
  3. In the image editor, click Transparency ().
    The cursor changes to the eyedropper tool when you hover over the image.
  4. Click the background where the chroma color is (usually green or blue).
  5. Using the Tolerance slider, adjust the transparency percentage.
  6. To revert the picture to its original state, click Reset.
  7. Click Save.
