Shadows on Faces

Hello.
I am new to Retouch Pro and look forward to being a member!
I've been working on this picture for a little while and have not been able to come up with a satisfactory solution. As you can see, some of the faces have some odd shadows covering them. Some have a little bit of information and some don't. I'm a bit stumped as to where I should go with this.
If this is necessary information--I am working with Photoshop CS on a mac.
Thank you and I look forward to anyone's help!!
Natalie

Unfortunately your picture is extremely small. Can you post a larger copy of it?

Hi, Noelf! Thank you for looking at this so quickly!! I tried attaching a larger file but the the attachment manager told me I had to keep it around 100kb (this file is 140kb). Is there a way around this?
Thanks!
Natalie

Hi Natalie,

Welcome to RP!

Noel is right, the size of the picture you posted makes working on it really impossible ....

As a thumb rule, the biggest size you can get, still remaining in the 100KB limit, is 800x600 pixels (72 pixels/inch) at about 60% quality setting ...

Hope this helps...

If all else fails, crop to only include the areas you're concerned about. Welcome to RP.

Hello, everyone.
Thank you for your advice! Sorry I didn't post this earlier--I'm having a problem with Macromedia Flash today (aghhhh).
Anyway, here is the larger file.

Well, I've come to the conclusion that I just have to swap heads from other images. Does anyone have any advice for this task? So, far, one issue I've come across is matching the grain in the images.

I can honestly say that this one has me stumped Other than copying faces from another shot, I can't seem to work anything out here.
