Turn on the Lights

I came across this interesting technique which will brighten up an otherwise dark photo. Here's one I found:

I use Photoshop and am not familiar enough with anything else, but here goes.

1. Duplicate the layer into a new document.
2. Switch over to the new document.
3. Change the Mode to Grayscale.
4. Apply a Gaussian Blur using 4.0 pixels.
5. Switch back to the original.
6. Select...Load Selection...
7. In the dialog box, select the Document you created in step 1. Select Background Gray as the Channel. Also, check Invert. Then click OK.
8. OK...so stuff is selected. Next select Fill from the Edit menu.
9. Use 50% gray, Color Dodge as the Mode. Leave Opacity at 100%.
10. If you feel like it, you can mess with the Contrast (use Auto Contrast, if you trust it).

"I used to be with it, but then they changed what "it" was. Now, what I'm with isn't it, and what's "it" seems weird and scary to me!

This is the result of the default settings.

That must be a feature of 7.0 and higher...I am still using 6.01.

Some people fly, some people don't. It's a matter of physics and geometry.
