Can photoshop fix flash on face?
I took a picture of my parents, it was indoors, of course used flash. Well now IMO, their faces are a tad too bright compare to the rest of the picture, because of the flash. So is there any way I can tone down the flash/exposure on their faces?
You will have to mask out the faces and only adjust the exposure ever so slighty on the faces. You do not want to adjust the exposure too much, otherwise it will look face.
You can use the burn tool, the exposure tool, highlights/shadows etc... Try everything to get it correct.

Get yourself a diffuser to tone down the flash output . They have them for onboard flash units as well as external speedlights. I'm assuming you were using the onboard flash?...Invest in an external unit, you never go back to the internal one as they are so limiting.
