    To adjust the brightness in Ps CS3,
    Under the "Image" tab > Adjustments > Brightness/contrast... you be able to reduce the brightness or play with curves ( Ctrl + M ).

    Depends on what the problem is. Direct flash on the face can create several different kinds of problems. Maybe if you posted an image ...

    A problem here is that the red channel is blown. If you shot in raw, you might be able to recover it in ACR. If you shot jpeg, there's no red data in the red channel where it reads 255.255.255, which is what all these red spots represent: Highlights that should be light red are pure white.



    A too-late lesson worth learning from this one is: Avoid direct flash at all costs.

    still not too bad

    do a control-J to dup a layer
    change the layer to multiply .. then adjust accordingly in the opacity
