I am trying to create a starfield from a noise layer by using Image->Adjustments->Levels. But when I've got to a setup with the result I want being visible in preview and I press OK to apply those changes permanently it's all turning into a brighter gray tone (which seems to be what PS does when I hit Auto instead of OK).

So what am I doing wrong?

Okay I sorted it out. The preview looks differently when zoomed out. Did it at 100% zoom and it worked out well.
