Can I use illustrator to fix this problem?

I have an image of a person, and the background is green (for a green screen).


Most of the picture works properly; that is, it becomes transparent where there is green. But two spots on the person also become transparent despite not being green or blue (the spots are grey/silver).


Is there any tool on illustrator that would help me fix this problem? I saw on a video that photoshop has a tool that allows you to paint with the surrounding pixels or something like that.


Any help would be appreciated, thanks.



Edit: By the way, here are the two spots that become transparent, undesirably: -2213-38-55-824.jpg

    Which version of Illustrator are you using ?

    You could create a clipping mask around the embeded raster image in Illustrator. Meaning you draw, with the pen tool, a path around pieces you wish to remain visible. So technically you could do this in AI, but really Photoshop is the correct tool for raster images.
