Re: help needed on how to edit a picture

You can start with a Hue Saturation adjustment layer (Photoshop) followed by a curves adjustment layer.

This is the results I got running the picture through a 3rd party Kodak correction plugin.

Needs work, but is it in the ballpark?

Re: help needed on how to edit a picture

I am not sure if this is heading in the direction you want to go but I used a Image > Adjust > Shadow/Highlight to brighten the shadows and midtones. Then a Hue/Saturation adjustment can do the rest for you.

Re: help needed on how to edit a picture

The main issue here is that you're working with a completely different set of tones between the two pictures. The sample picture is full of warm tones, from her clothing to the building. Your picture has a lot of cool colors, such as the blue sash. As such, you'll have a fairly difficult time getting accurate results comparatively. That said, here's my attempt.
