    Can anyone briefly describe how to correct over exposure using photoshop?

    It depends on the actual original, but most of the time you can get a decent image, if the over expposure isn't too drastic. Yoiu are never going to get back elements that are washed out. If you are scanning try to manipulate the scanner profiles before scanning. Otherwise use the auto correct functions (contrast and levels) under Image and then adjust on the tool menu.

    Hope this helps. Otherwise you'll be practising a long time with much trail and error. I know I've done it.

    You can cover up overexposed parts using cut and paste along with the clone tool, but that depends on the how much you would have to do and how complex it would be.

    I suppose it depends on how important the image is.

    Use a Curves adjustment mask, set the blend mode to multiply then paint into the mask to reveal the correctly exposed bits.

    That's a terific method. If you can't find it, it's not a mask as such - try "add layer, adjustment layer, curves."
