Hi folks, question for ya. I'm a new user to Lightroom and I'm trying to darken the background of an image. I have a photo of my daughter and I want the background to be completely blacked out. Is this possible to do? If so, how?

Sure, use the brushing tool in the top right menu. It has an icon like a circle, I think.

After posting this I found a guide that showed me how to do it (among many things). But thank you, Citrus!
