Hi- Looking for some help touching up our wedding photos. Apparently, the makeup person used something she shouldn't have, so my wife's face is quite a few shades lighter than the rest of her.
I've read some of the manual and looked through a few tutorials, but I'm completely lost. If someone could point me in the right direction (in terms of a tuturioal or section of the manual), it would be a great help.

I highly recommend this site http://www.normankoren.com/makingfineprints.html . While not a gimp tutorial it covers the concepts that can be "mapped" to most of the photo manipulation suites. There are gimp tutorials and books out there to get you "gimped up"

This may be heresy on this list, but as a photographer I need to say it. Unless you intend to do a lot of photo-retouching (and given the importance of these photos), you may want to turn this over to a pro photo house that has people who do this full time. The point is that while it's not hard to get "ok" results, you'll spend a lot of time learning to get great results. Take a few passes at it, and if you're happy, fine. If not and you don't intend to make a hobby or business out of this, hand it over to a pro. High quality photo retouching is both a craft and an art, and can require the patience of Job.

Assuming you had this shot professionally, I'm surprised they didn't suggest this.
