If other areas are too dense like the dress in this example, open your Brush Tool, make the Brush size relatively large, the hardness 0% and the Opacity, 40%. Make sure the foreground color is black and then brush over areas you’d like to make less than dense.

to clean up some areas, make a “composite  snapshot”  by pressing ctrl + Shift + alt + E  on a pc or Cmd + Shift + option + E on a Mac .

invert the foreground and background colors by clicking on the curved, double-arrow icon or pry pressing “x” on your Keyboard. Make the brush size small the medium and the opacity, 100%.
