    How dark is it?

    You can lighten up an underexposed picture to bring out more detail, but everything has limits...

    It is taken at night, it is not a high resolution picture or from a high dollar camera. I am just trying to see what is at the edge of the flash. I can make a little bit of it out, but would like a little more light. It doesnt have to be great or anything.
    It is from a trail camera out in the woods. Can I post the pic on here with out offending anyone?

    Yeah. It would actually help a lot if you did post the picture.

    It's hard to say what can or can't be done without seeing it.

    Just host it online somewhere (photobucket, flickr, etc...) and paste the address inside the IMG tags.

    You can do anything you want to the picture. What matter is how will it look AFTER you do it.
    Post the pic or PM for email address and you'll get help you need

    Probably not a whole lot you're going to be able to get from that...

    It's just too dark - there is no information in that area of the picture, it's just all black.

    You can see a faint trace of the antlers, but trying to bring it out will just make it look worse.
