We'll need a bit more background to help you out. If you can, post a sample picture as an example of what you're working with.

It depends really on what you're trying to achieve, but off the top of my head, these would be effects to try:

  • Noise removal
  • Soften Portrait
  • Basic Adjustments
  • Sharpen+
  • Shadow/Highlight Recovery (similar to Basic Adjustements)
  • Red Eye Removal / Quick Fix
  • Everything in 'Adjustements' drop down.
