Matching Color's

How would i go about making the dark brown part of this texture the same color/tone of the brighter area? everything I try makes it turn grey, and in between the two sections wierd edge/discolorations appear.

The actuall texture is much bigger so doing it for me with the image above is no help at all.

Add transparent layer above, set to "dodge" mode ("divide" mode may give similar results).

Paint on that layer with gray 50% (127,127,127) the parts you want to lighten. You can adjust efficiency two ways: paint with a different gray (lighter/darker) or adjust the "dodge" layer transparency.

Thanks the second layer idea certainly made repairing the edges extremely easy.

But afterward matching shades there still clearly diffearent Its quite simular to how I tryed the first time. I'm a total beginner but i assume its because there original colors. If i was to do the same again it would get brighter but not closer. Is there anyway to match them closer?

RE: Matching Color's
You can use "Colors/Map/Rotate colors". Basically you select a range of colors and convert it into another range of colors.
