What Version of Lightroom-Classic do you have?

How did you change the background?

Did you use Masking?

Did you make adjustments with the sliders in the Masking Tool panel?

What File-type are you saving (Exporting?) the image as?

Post a screen-clip of the image with the changed background in the Develop module.

 

 

 

Regards. My System: Lr-Classic 12.3 Photoshop 24.5, ACR 15.3.1, Lightroom 6.3.1, Lr-iOS 8.0.8, Bridge 13.0.3, Windows-11.

I used the masking tool to change the background to black as it says to use it to change the background. I didn't adjust any of the sliders just clicked background under masking and it changed to black which is what I wanted. I was exporting it as a JPEG. I have attached a screenshot.Screenshot.png
