Photoshop/Lightroom: Variable inversion

So I have been having fun using an app on my phone called Union (By Pixite LLC) which has an invert colors feature, but it also has a slider for that function which can produce really cool results. A bunch of other overlap settings on this app are cool too. I think adding the variable inversion feature to Photoshop and/or Lightroom would be really cool. The only problem with this app is that it is only on my phone, which is limited to only 4096x4096 resolution which is not good enough for my use and it is a hassle to transfer images back and forth. Here is the technical stuff that could make it happen:

pictureColor = absoluteValue(pictureColor - ((255, 255, 255) * invertFactor);

if invertFactor is 0, the picture is unchanged.

if invertFactor is 1, the picture is fully inverted

Photoshop only uses invertFactor of 1 right now

Here is an example with an pic I took:

Photoshop can already do that, by duplicating the layer, inverting, and changing the blend mode and percentage.

It does produce the effect to an extent but it uses a bit of a different method in my view
