How do I make a dark area lighter (w/ any color)?
there is an area of my face that is a little darker because of a pimple scar or something. So its a dark pink/red, and i want to make it lighter to match the rest of my face. How can i do this?

thanks!

RE: How do I make a dark area lighter (w/ any color)?
- Add transparent layer
- Put that layer in "divide" mode (selector at top of Layers list)
- Paint on the layer in gray. The darker the gray, the more efficient, but don't overdo it. Use a very soft brush or better, the airbrush.
