I've seen this done on someone's blog (http://dogbreathblog.com/2012/05/04/) but can't work out how to do it. I've attached my photo that I want to adjust- the coloured dog's right side is completely blown out. I also wanted to know how to do the opposite- brighten shadows on the face.
If you could point me in the right direction, that would be greatly appreciated. The program I use is Photoshop CS5.
