I am brand new to screen printing and have lined up a job with a local high school. They have sent me an image they want placed on their shirt but I cannot get it to expose correctly because the image is light. I would consider myself a novice with Photoshop and I am having a hard time darkening the image enough for it to expose on the screen. Can anyone please help?? I can email the jpeg file if anyone is willing to help. Thanks in advance!!!

In photoshop go to image > adjustments > hue / saturation , then you can turn the lightness down, you can also play with colours, if its not dark enough click ok and repeat.

Go to Image > Adjustments > Variations. You can adjust the darkness of the image. Or go to Image > Adjustments > Levels then play with the input level value or move the middle slide to the right and observe the darkness of the object as the slide is moved to the right.

is it just a one color image?

why don't you post the image, that way you will get more help.

my first suggestion if it was a one color design, would be to make duplicate of the original when opened. so now you have 2 layers....image and image duplicate. delete the image layer. now you can edit the duplicate layer. delete the background if anything is there by selecting with magic wand and hitting delete. then using the magic wand select the text/graphic, make your fill color black and using the paint bucket tool fill the selected areas.
