How to make skin brighter?

I’m working on skin, but i have problem: I don’t know how to make basic texture brighter! The basic texture are dark, but I need to make it brighter, because it will be easier to skinning. I’m using Photoshop CS3 to edit texture.

Before editing a skin, I suggest actually learning your image editing program.

Excuse me, but i need help with it, because i don’t know how to do that, but I’m mading some photoshop images…

In Photoshop, Image->Adjustments->Brightness/Contrast. I don’t see how you could miss that, or not find it out on Google, unless you didn’t look.

I knew that, and I literally bought CS5 20 minutes ago, which is my first Photoshop. Don’t think you searched.
