You can use photoshop for such an operation.

You should have posted this in the digital Art/ Photo forum but...


In Photoshop it can be done several ways depending on what you mean by lighten.

If the picture is too dark because of shadowing you can lighten the image by adjusting the Shadows/Highlight

If the picture is too dark because of contrast you can lighten it by adjusting the contrast, or levels

if you want to lighten the whole image you can decrease the opacity levels over a white background.

Oh man, I love the gimp. It is totally free of cost. Be sure to get the GTK+ runtime environment if you are a silly windows user. I think you need X11 for OS X, and it should be installed on your linux machine if you have one and your distro includes it.

Photoshop will definitely do the trick. It all depends on what OriginNO_II said.
You can lower the opacity, or change brightness settings ..

Yeah, Why? I know that a lot of people don't like these runtime environments or frameworks or anything because they think it is a security risk. But if you have proper antivirus and firewall software, that should help protect you.

I would throw my vote in for Irfanview. It is free and easier to use than photoshop for simple things like lightening a picture or changing color saturation.

If you need to do custom things you can use photoshop but if you are just changing the gamma settings on some pictures try Irfanview.
