    I’m trying to get rid of a portrait background with the selection brush tool. I’ve selected the background, but now what? How do I see the portrait without the background? I’d like to put a plain color behind it. Thanks, your videos are helping a lot. Mary

      It can be found under the Editor’s Enhance menu, under Adjust Color > Adjust Color Curves.
