Default glare removal

Hi, I took the following pic of a young lady and I have tried various tools, but cannot remove the 'flash glare' from her forehead and cheek. If you have any advice or would like to tackle it on your own and post it, I'd appreciate the help...the finished image is going to be used in a modeling portfolio, so it must be near -perfect...
Thanks in advance, Johnny...

I've had a go at the picture - see:

If you're interested, I can upload the tiff version to pbase - it's pretty big!

Hey, that's very good...I like the nose and cheek, but I think the forehead has a dark caste to it, sort of like an old bruise, any way you can lighten it up? Thanks, Johnny
If you can post it as a tiff, I'd appreciate it, thanks again!

Actually, that's exactly what I thought when I looked at it later! I'll have another bash tomorrow - it's a good way to learn about some of the features in Photoshop!

By the way, the tiff is nearly 9MB. That's not a problem for me (my internet access is unmetered), but let me know if you'd prefer a high quality jpeg.

I've got dsl, so a tiff shouldn't be a problem, but maybe you could post your best quality , largest-file jpeg...thanks, Johnny

OK - I lied about doing it tomorrow!

I've uploaded a high quality jpeg and a compressed tiff of a new version - both are simply named Dinara 2. The change is done by blending in another layer, so if you think the effect is too weak or too strong it's trivial to modify. I've kept the layered version locally, so I can always upload that as well if you want! Not sure if pbase supports it, however.

All the best,

Graeme

That is really well done!

I had to remove some light glare from a couple of images at the weekend and took a while to get it looking right.

Please excuse the inexcusable blurring as I forgot to pack the tripod and it was bitterly cold.

Thanks :-)

(Assuming you were talking to me!)

It gave me a chance to play with layers for the first time. I found it really useful to put in a temporary 'Levels' adjustment layer to bump up the contrast to an insane degree - this let me see when the areas did not blend in properly.
