Photoshop Question

I have a photo where the flash didn't go off and i'm in front of a window, so what you got is me looking like a dark shadow and everything in front of me dark as well lol.

I'd like to lighten it where you can actually make out my face. Is this possible to do? I have Photoshop 5.0 but I've never really figured out how to use it, so any directions would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Without getting into layers, you can try to adjust the levels, curves, or brightness of the image. Back up the image first.

Go to Image|Adjustment|Levels and you will see a histogram with 3 sliders. Slide the gray one left to brighten it. You can also bring up the Image|Adjustment|Levels and click/drag the line to the right. Or you can go to Image|Adjustment|Brightness/Contrast and adjust there.
I have the latest PS, so I don't know if the older ones work the same way.

For the second "Image|Adjustment|Levels" - the "Levels" should be "Curves" (typo). Either of the 3 methods should work. I prefer levels.
