Hi there,

 

We're sorry for the trouble with Lightroom Classic. Would you mind telling us the version of Lightroom Classic you're on? Please share the System Info by going to the Lightroom Classic app > Help> system Info, copy the info and send it to us.

 

Could you please elaborate on the issue more, what's happening while exporting the edited image? Are you getting any error messages? Since when are you seeing this issue? Also, which file format are you trying to export?

 

We're here to help. Just need some info.

 

Regards,

Tarun

An export will have all the develop mods baked into it. It will not have the various steps included.

 

So, you create a mask, say a Radial Gradiant, you increase the exposure in that mask, Fine, now you export the image. The new image should look like where you left off in the original photos edits, that area you brought the exposure up, should look as expected. What you will not see is the mask, not the pin for the mask, not the mask, not the overlay for the mask.

This is a common misunderstanding of how masks work. What your screenshot shows is that the background is black as a result of using the 'Image on black' mask overlay. A mask overlay is just a way to view the mask however, it is not an image adjustment in itself. The screenshot also shows that you did not make any adjustments in the mask panel. That is why the exported image does not show any results of your masking. If you want the background to become black, then try adding a -5.0 Exposure adjustment and see if that is enough to make that background black. If it isn't, then copy the mask so you have two exposure adjustments.

Somehow I suspect I am reading your problem incorrectly.

 

Ok, looking at that nice photo you posted, I notice the following

 

  • Mask in use appears to be Select Subject
  • Overlay appears to be on
  • Overlay in use appears to be Image on Black
  • Last develop (in mask) edit, has not yet been fully commited to vy moving on, or just pressing done, not a big deal as to issues at hand.

 

note, tested this on one of mine as to clarify in my mid that thosevare the steps that may have occured. And I notice, that the history panel does not show the change in overlay in use.

 

So, that nice black background, is not a background, it is not an edit to the image, it is just the overlay for the mask currently in use.

 

What shows up if you click on done (or move on to another develop mod), Probably nothing new as no sliders appear to have been moved.

 

If you want that nice black background, this is not it.
