Good luck Vinny. I recently saw this technique posted by @dipstick, it might be worth a trial too.

There is an alternative way to dodge/burn in order to darken or lighten parts of an image.


1) Add a blank layer above background layer and set Blending Mode to "Overlay".

2) Use the brush to paint on the overlay layer. Black to darken and White to lighten.

3) Adjust opacity to suit...
