    Is it possible to do this after selecting the chosen area with the magic wand or do i have to brush over the area?

    Reuben, you can use Image>Exposure to affect an entire selection. Use a negative percentage to ‘Burn’ and a positive percentage to ‘Dodge’.

    Interesting tool, but when would you want to use it? Also, how does it differ from just painting with black at a low opacity?
