When I import a full length photo, it looks like my subjects are floating. What can I do for them to look like they are standing on the floor?

Yeah, that works. With that image, the problem is that there is nothing distinguishing the floor from the wall behind them. It looks like the background is all wall right now. It could be all floor instead, if there was some perspective on the bg image.

Yeah, your background image doesn't appear to have a 'floor', so it's always going to look like the people are floating.
