    That is a great, quick fix! I also like to paint with the brush and/or layer in darken mode and it will only darken the same color as it paints. That helps on the lighter spots you want darker – then you dont have to worry as much about using the masks! It works great on highlight areas, lighter grass or plants, tone down a shirt color or spot, etc.

    This is great and I have *just* the photo to try it on. Not that I’m not nervous, ‘cuz you make it look so easy, but I’m sure it can’t be *that* easy. :D

    I’m looking forward to the second part… wonder what it will teach.

    Ok. I just wanted to thank you again. I had a pic that basically had no color in the sky and i was able to color the sky with blue. I have elements and this still helped me. A few variations on the steps but i think i can do it now. Thanks Jodi!!!!
