In the effects panel, you can select invert image from the filters tab.

Theres a color replacement filter as well.

You use the color picker to select the color to change.
Then a select the color used for replacement.

Hi Julie,

To get a GOOD version of your image might be difficult depending on the quality and gradients you are working with.


I would try using the COLOR REPLACEMENT tool to see if you can get more of what you need.


I took this image, that has a a gray background, and different gray text, and turned it into a white background with black text using the replace color process.

I made a video to show you how I did this. There is no audio.https://www.screencast.com/t/RHvwxMSArKn
Also, for gradients in your image, there is a tolerance option you can use in the Color Replacement tool to get more coverage with your color change. 
I hope this helps!

Kelly

That's a trippy looking post! Looks like an image was represented using some kind of code!

I'm thinking your browser needs updating.

Or perhaps its your computer on the fritz ?

Either way, I'm not encountering what you've posted

Hmmm, must be Chrome.

Don't see it if I look at this thread using IE or firefox it's not there. Oh, and it's there even with history and temp files gone. Strange.
