Mark and Michael -

If you go to Image/Adjustment/Levels you will get a histogram.  Choose the 
black eyedropper and click on the part of the photo that you want to be 
blackest.  Click on the white eyedropper for the lightest highlight.  That 
will give you a starting place and you can adjust the sliders from there.
