Using the Invert and Equalize Commands

The Invert command reverses the colors and tonal values to their opposite values; in effect creating a negative. The Equalize command exaggerates the contrast between similar color values. It's useful in finding stray pixels in a seemingly solid color area, or for a special color effect.

Use the Invert Command

Open an image.

Click the Image menu, point to Adjustments, and then click Invert.

The brightness values of each image channel are reversed, creating a negative color or grayscale image.
