Re: Flash shot of group fades to dark. How to impr

As stated before as the shadows deepen the detail gets lost in artifacts but here is my go at it with Paint shop pro 11...

Topaz DeJPG, Duped layer, screen, flatten, curves, topaz clean, custom smudge brushes at variable opacities.

Or, I assume CS3 is like CS2, you could go the menu:
Image> Adjustments> Shadow/Highlights and see how that works moving the sliders where you need them. You might try Levels after that. The big problem will be noise and artifacting. You can go to . They have a freeware filter that works on jpegs that possibly can help with the noise. Good luck.
