02. Duplicate the Spy layer (Cmd/Ctrl + J) and go to Filter > Noise > Dust & Scratches. Set the radius to 10 pixels and the threshold to 0. This filter gives the image a smooth, slightly stylized feel and is great for creating illustration styles.
03. Next, select Image > Adjustments > Shadow/Highlights. Set the Shadow values as follows: Amount – 100%; Tonal Width – 0; Radius – 0 pixels. For the Highlights, select the following values: Amount – 0%; Tonal Width – 0; Radius – 0 pixels. In Adjustments, set Color Correction to 100, and Midtone contrast to 11. This will bump up the shadows and reduce the image’s highlights.
