    Do you mean the left side is to dark and the right side is light or the other way around, also it may help if you post the image in question!

    Re: lighten only one side of a photo

    Use a Curves Adjustment layer to lighten the dark side. (note: You can use either a reveal all or conceal all layer mask, your choice.)

    On the Curves Adjustment layers-layer mask, use whatever selection process your most comfortable with (I use the Brush Tool) to mask out lighter side.

    Once the mask is in place, use the Curves Adjustment layer to fine tune the match to the lighter side.

    You might also require additional Adjustment layers. Just add your layer mask to the new Adj. layers by holding the option/alt key and dragging the mask.

    Fast fix, but with a photo that damaged more light more it shows, see second example...

    Re: lighten only one side of a photo

    Here's a quick edit using the method I described and a bit of clone work.

    It's a very poor quality image so the results are not that great.

    It'll be too grainy if you make it lighter. Probably you can apply black and white filter - the photo will look older but qaulity will be kinda saved if it's possible...
