Re: need help.

This is what I would do in CS 2, so I don't know if you have access to similar tools. Add a levels or curves adjustment layer and click on OK. Don’t actually do anything in the levels or curves box. Change blending mode of this adjustment layer to Multiply. Click on Image > Adjustments > Invert to change layer mask from white to black. Make sure white is set as your foreground color. Choose the gradient tool and select the 2nd option in the dropdown box which is "Foreground to Transparent". Then start experimenting by pulling gradient lines downward in the areas you want darkened. Each drag of the gradient adds to the darkness. I used very short pulls for your photo. I don't know anything about Paint Shop, but I hope these suggestions can be tried out.
