The Shadows/Highlights command, available in Photoshop Elements, is an easy way to eliminate shadows from faces caused by the subject wearing a brimmed hat and or being backlit. It is also an excellent tool for editing a high contrast scene, for example a sunset that casts the foreground into shadows. If you duplicate the background layer, you can maintain a non-destructive editing workflow, as shown in the tutorial.
