    Have you set the Flash Exposure Compensation? Lower the FEC to -1 or even -2 if it is too strong.

    Also, is the flash set directly on to the subject? Are you using a diffuser? Post a sample picture so we can help diagnose.

    Read up about how the flash metering for your camera works. Which camera do you use? Also, keep in mind that 3rd party flash systems might have some compatibility issues and not support all features.

    there are many reasons for the picture overexposed when using flash.

    you want us to list down one by one?

    ok, just name a few,

    using flash in daylight with wide open aperture...
    subject too close..
    subject too small and background is too dark or far away..
