    In addition to the links provided, before working with curves you should set your levels. You want to set the white and black points for the image before you start adjusting the mid-tones. You don't have to (and you can effectively edit the levels in the curves adjustment), but you'll have a bigger curve to work with if you do.

    And don't forget -- do these things with adjustment layers so you can go back and re-adjust.
