I took this at my Halloween party last night w/ my friends w/ my G6 w/ the wide-angle lense, and the lense blocked out the flash. I had forgotten that it would do that. I know that i have to get rid of the red-eye, but is there any way in Elements that I can brighten the large dark spot in this picture?

not simple, here's the best I could do with it in like 5 minutes. Not sure exactly how perfect you want it, this should do for just admiring.

All the leveling creates a LOT of noise in the photo and I don't have a noise reduction filter.

Now that you that this can be done, the next step would b to blend the two versions.

The wide-angle lense was on it, some that's how it came to be so dark. What did you guys use to fix that up? Like, which tools in photoshop, because i wanted to do some editing myself.

Basically what you want to do is first add an omni light source.
FILTER>RENDER>LIGHT SOURCES
Center the light source somewhere near the edge of the photo. Then relevel it by going to edit>adjust>levels .
Only thing is that creates a lot of noise in the picture. So a noise reduction filter would help to return it to normal.

The other issue that you face when fixing up this picture is that all three of the people in the middle are wearing black. Having them right next to each other in a dark spot of the shot makes fixing that piece hard. So when setting up a shot next time try to move people around that way the people are better defined.

no problem. I have some time tonight so I'll work on getting that image better for yah. Check back around 7 or so. While I'm still pretty new at photography I've been working with photoshop since I was a little kid, so with some more time I'm sure I could make it almost perfect.

Ok, spent a little bit more time and was able to make it a bit nicer. Since I still don't have a noise reduction filter, so it's still a bit noisy, though not anywhere near as much. Here's how this was done.

4 light sources, one spot between the girl and the guy to cut down on the black blob look, one big omni off the page to light the table one small omni on the right side to get rid of the black ring where the shadow used to be, one omni at the top of the table in the center of the people on the right, and another right on the girl.

This made the image levels a lot more stable and easier to adjust. I also adjusted the image curve.

if someone with a noise reduction filter could give this a once over we'd be in business!
