I always buy those disposable cameras to take pictures and most of the time, the pictures come out pretty good. I had one picture that I took during the day come out really dark. I want this picture for my 2007 Christmas cards. Can a photo place make the picture a little bit lighter without disorting the entire picture?

It might be worth scanning it in and seeing if you can lighten it using a photo editing program like photoshop. As long as you scan it in at a high enough quality you should be able to make it good enough to make your cards out of it.

You may have to depend on computer packages such as Adobe Photoshop. You can do whole lot of adjustments in you picturs using these softwares. If it is a digital image you can do it easily. Otherwise you may have to san it and make a digital image
