Neb, there's at least a couple of ways to Dodge (Lighten) and Burn (Darken).

For quick and dirty, use the Dodge and Burn Tool in your Tools palette. They're located directly below the Gradient Tool.

A better way with more control is do the following:

Go to Layers Palette>New Layer>Overlay Mode and choose Fill with Overlay-neutral color (50% grey).

Choose a medium soft edge brush set to about 25%. Set your background/foreground colors to Black/White (press D)

Now with brush set to White (lighten, Dodge) or Black (darken, Burn), paint over the areas you want to correct.

Let me know if this makes sense.

Cheers

Dave

Neb, putting a 50% grey overlay on shouldnt change the colour at all.

Go to edit -> fill -> 50% grey or if you dont have that option, fill the layer with RGB 128, 128, 128

Here's a Screen Capture of the New Layer dialogue box. To access this dialogue box you have to go to the top menu and choose Layer>New.
