The task now is to click the color swatches for the Map Black
To and Map White To values to reassign these tones to other col-
ors. For the Map Black To value, I'm going to click the color swatch
and select a dark blue color. For the Map White To value, I'm going
to click the color swatch and select a really bright blue. Although
you can fade the tinting by using the Amount to Tint property,
I'm going to leave this at the default 100% to get the tint at its full
strength. The end results look much more like water (Fig. 6.103).
Remember that effects often work better when used in con-
junction with other effects. Sometimes when using colors other
than black and white with the Tint effect, you can lose contrast.
In this case, I added contrast with the Levels effect (Fig. 6.104).
