Effects.

1. Choose Layer > Duplicate layer to create a new layer to work with.

2. Next, select Filter > Stylize > Solarize. This filter is a single-step filter with no dialog box or settings to make.

3. You'll get a dark, murky image with some tones reversed. Immediately apply Image > Adjustments > Auto Levels to produce the more viewable picture shown in Figure 3.7.

4. The black background is still a little disconcerting, so you might want to use the Magic Wand selection tool to select the background, then click inside the black areas within the largest filter on the right side of the image, too. Then choose Image > Adjustments > Invert to convert the black background to white, as shown in Figure 3.8.
