Help with colour depth in Photoshop

Morning all

After some help with this before I finally remove the last traces of hair on my head!
I have an image is being inserted into a background for printing. When I print the black seems very washed out, and lacking depth. The rest of the image is fine. The image is of a black and white dog (sorry was going to attach but cant in this forum)

I am trying to darken the black areas whilst retaining the eye detail and brightness of the white fur. Can someone please advise me if this is possible? I am fine with general photoshop stuff but never had to play with image colours too much.

If it is possible, can you spare a bit of time to tell me how.

Cheers all

Adrian

Adrian, you can post the pic in the off topic section,
I am not a ps expert but others may then be able to give you some better advice, on seeing the pic.

Adrian,

Try Image/Adjustments/Levels. You will see a slider on the left and the right. Not sure which way round but move one of them towards the middle.

Hope helps.

Thanks for the help.

Hi Adrian,

Another way of changing individual colours in photoshop that works very well is go to "image" "adjustments" then "selective colour" on the tap that has "colours" select the colour you would like more of or less. So in the blacks put it right up the slider and with various other colours you think may add to it.
It gives you a preview which is really useful.
Hope this helps,

Lorr :D
