    in PS, duplicate the current layer. choose multiply in the blending mode.

    The picture should darken.

    Then adjust the opacity to suit your taste.

    good luck

    i think you can 'tone down' the photographs with PS, but there's really not much solution, as many details in the photo are not going to show up even if you use curves or levels unless the details are unimportant...just my 2 cents worth , maybe there are experts out there who knows more

    Forget Levels and Curves etc, Jimtong has already given you the fastest, simplest and most readily controllable method.

    Similarly for under-exposed pics Choose Layer, duplicate layer (Ctrl-J) and 'Screen' Blend to lighten, then adjust Opacity.

    If the highlights were blown, there's no way to retrieve the details for those areas.

    Welcome, there are many methods including those mentioned by other CS'er, I learn this method from a book on PS and find it easy to use.

    On the other hand, if you find your photo too underexposed, use the same method, but instead of multiply, use "screen" to blend then adjust opacity until you like it.
