  • I would assume it's two layers -- one that's inverted and one that's not. Then they are combined either via blending modes or masking.

That is basicly a simple Inverted solarization.

On Photoshop

1) Open Curves (Ctrl+M)

2) Use a U shaped curve.

(The normal solarization is an inverted U shape)

But of course you can prepare some masking to controll the result.

If the case I would prepare a mask

  • Copying the image.

  • Pasting it into a new layer mask.

  • Moving curves.
