Hi there,

I wanted to know how to brighten the face, and dim the brightness on her left arm.

Is this possible?

And anything else that could probably improve the picture.

Thank you

Added a curves layer, inverted the mask, painted over the face to lighten. for her arm, eye dropper tool to sample her arm color, then slowly painted over the bright spot. Not perfect, but you can experiment and refine. Good luck

ACR is the RAW editing component of Photoshop, Bridge, and Lightroom, which can now also work on jpegs. It has dodge and burn type tools that will do what you want really easily.
