    Some recent outdoor photos came back a little too bright. I'd like to give the sky a richer blue and perhaps correct some of the foreground brightness. Is there a program that will do this fairly easily?

    What were you shooting with? Most DSLRs (and some point and shoots) come with software that will allow you to do this for free. Or you could download a demo of photoshop elements.

    They're photos from a race I ran so I ordered digital copies, but I don't have them on my camera.

    I do have a D80, so if there's a way to transfer to my camera to make the corrections I would do that.

    I have iPhoto '09 and I tried using the one click Enhance button, but it didn't really do much. Is iPhoto '11 better?
