Making an image brighter

Hello everyone. I'm working on a collage where one of the images I've used doesn't seem bright enough. It's the image of the unborn baby. I've had some people say they didn't know what it was because it was too dark. I've tried making it lighter but it looks too flat and out of place when I do it. I've also tried using a glow but I'm not very good at it! Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

PS I've attached (hopefully!) two images, one of the collage and one of the image of the unborn baby.

Do a Levels adjustment and move the mid tone slider toward the left until you get something you like better.

I assume you are trying to make the fetus image brighter. I used Shadow/Highlights on the attached.

Nature1:---Not sure if this is what you want, but take a look at this, it's called "Jetting" http://www.innographx.com/forum/download.php?id=4027 it will certainly lighten up your image.

Re: Making an image brighter

I don't think the image you're using is distinct enough -- I'd search Google images for another. I think an illustration would be clearer.

Thanks everyone for you input! The one that worked best for me was to slide the middle lever to the left. It looks great, thanks! Bob
