    I have photoshop and I'm learning very slowly but I'm trying to put a lighter background on this picture since it's so dark. Was wondering if anyone wanted to play around with it.

    ehh i dunno.

    Not very sharp picture + hair = mess.

    It takes a really sharp picture to be able to do clipping paths well, and a sharp picture this is not. it would be easier and less time consuming to try and do it right the first time. Also if you can't, at least try to work with what you have and givemore exposure if needed.

    You could try bumping the exposure, like he said. Or, alternately, adding curves. It's going to be difficult with the hair.

    Go into your layers palette and click on the circle with one half dark and one half light. Choose curves from the pop-up menu.

    This is putting an adjustment layer over the image, which means that you aren't editing the image directly (you can undo all of it).

    Pull the curve until the background is how you want it, ignoring how it is making the girl look.

    Click out, and make sure that you are still on the curve layer in your layers palette. Then click on the brush tool and choose black. You can then paint away the areas that you don't want to be affected by the curve, i.e., the girl.

    However, you will have to go in and do the individual hairs with a small brush, so it is going to be a pain.

    Hope that helps.

    I primarily just added some fill light with lightroom. Don't have photoshop up and running yet. It looks like the background was black or dark gray?
