The Fade adjustment lets you lighten or fade just the very darkest areas of an image without affecting the midtones or highlights. This gives the shadows (and the entire image) a washed-out, faded look.
Do one of the following:
Drag the Intensity slider to control the strength of the Invert adjustment. Hold down thekey before dragging if you’d like to extend the range of the Fade slider beyond 100%. You can also enter a percentage value from –200% to 200%.
Show Original: Click the Show Original button or press thekey on your keyboard to see what the image looks like without any color adjustments.
To reset your changes, click the Fade pop-up menu in the Tool Options pane and choose Reset.
