First paste the image into Photoshop, make sure it is quite a large image so that it can be worked with easily. Right click the layer that the image is on, press "Duplicate Layer" and then press ok on the pop up.

Press the mini eye next to the bottom layer, so that this layer is now invisible. Make sure the top layer is selected again:
