Messed Up

I just looked at my thread again, and i see what you mean. I don't know how i managed to put that in. I must have copied and pasted and not noticed what i had done. Oh i am so sorry

Hope this is better

This is what I learned from J. Kost in one of her tutorials.
1. Opened a curves adjustment layer
2. Moved the slider up (lower left, from dark to lighter
3. When I was satisfied with the faces I clicked OK, (at this point don’t worry about the rest of the photo being to light)
4. On the layer mask, use the brush tool, and paint with black all of the image you want to bring back.
This really worked well for me, and you can still adjust the photo to how light and dark and with what detail you want.

No worries Wayne. I thought it was pretty funny though! Your Curves suggestion is simple and effective.

Cheers
Dave

Thanks Wayne, that fits more with your image, or it would if your image were still posted. Unfortunately when you removed your faulty post you also removed your image, so others probably don't understand what we're talking about here.

Hi - I used Gary's instructions and then furthered it by flattening the image and running a quick auto-level to remove that cold contrastly bluish tone.

Great method Gary..

The method is not mine, just one I've picked up somewhere, probably here on RP. Look around the tutorials section, it's a veritable treasure trove of technique.
