Great peaceful expression on your Kaylie, WisconsinGirl.

Here is my attempt to "bring out" your photo a bit more.

The shot was so dark to start with, that I tried to lighten.

What order do you do that in when things need lightening (without ending up so it is faded)? I'm using Photoshop. Thanks for any tips you can give!!

I think personally, curves, color adjustment, noise reduction. That should have the smallest degree of noise. When it is necessary to denoise myself i usually convert to LAB and blur the lightness, or i give a slight tweek to the red and blue channels.

I've never used "curves." What is it and where would I find it? Here is the original:



We just got a new monitor and I'm realizing that the last one had the brightness knob way down, which definitely has warped my sense of reality.

Kaylie's beautiful. Looks like she has plenty of space to chase gophers around - lucky her!

Curves is the most powerful of the color/brightness adjustment tools in ps. It allows for stretching portions of the histogram while compressing others. Typically for opening shadows in an image the first thing i try is an S-curve.
image => adjustments => curves
Just take a look at it play around, there are numerous tutorials on how to use it for various manipulations.
BTW, my family comes from Wisconsin, i don't really remember counties, but near johnson creek(johnson crick for those that don't know:G)
