I tried the shadow removal tutorial with no joy.

My History Pallet says:
Duplicate Image
Rectangular Marquee
Match Color
New Layer
Magic Wand

Add Layer Mask

What am I doing wrong?
I think you need to create two separate images for match color to work. Open your image then use ctrl+A, ctrl+C, ctrl+N, 'ok', ctrl+V, this will copy and paste the image to a creat a separate new image. Then selct the two areas and click on 'Match color', in the dialogue box check that the target and source images are correct.

Although I linked to that tutorial, I don't actually use that method myself, I usually select the shadow, copy it to a new layer and use adj-shadows/highlights, then apply a levels adjustment, then blend it back using a layer mask to adjust the edges. Not perfect but usually good enough.

Thanks Marc, I think the problem I'm having is this procedure: "Next copy the duplicate image and add it as a layer on your original image."
