It helps a lot to lighten photos like this.  Do you have a photo editing program?

Any free / cheap suggestions, preferably ones that don't require .RAW files and don't involve uploading the photo to the application's web site?  (And are easy for the inexperienced to figure out without a three-credit-hour course and a weekly one hour lab?)

I mainly use:

Microsoft Digital Image Suite Anniversary Edition (very old, but very easy to use), but it looks like it's only available on eBay now (I wouldn't download it!).

And RawTherapee, a free open-source program which can edit RAW and non-RAW photos.

I think GIMP is similar, but I haven't used that much.

Another free program I haven't used much is Paint.NET which, I am told, is easy to use (probably much easier to use than RawTherapee).

I've installed GIMP for users at work but it looks like overkill for my rudimentary skills.  I'll install Paint.NET and see what it does.

Of course, it would help immensely if I knew what I was aiming for.  I think figuring out where I'm going is the bigger problem, more than choosing a tool to get there.

Thanks!

I downloaded GIMP a while back and found it rather confusing to use. RawTherapee was something I was planning on trying sometime.
