hue saturation


Press CTRL + L or go to Image » Adjustments » Levels and play around with the settings to get your desired effect. These are the settings I used:

Create a new layer and select the foreground as #656565 and set the background to #000000

5. Go to Filter » Render » Clouds
6. Then go to Filter » Blur » Gauissian Blur and set to 20-30px
